And when does art become child abuse?
The Witch Doctor made this comment on 9 November 2012:
“There is no doubt that Graham Ovenden is a very talented artist. When art becomes pornography can be difficult. Presumably in the case of a child, it is to do with whether a child is used as a model and if so in what circumstances. It’s late. Will sleep on this!”
The Witch Doctor has slept on this dilemma and she is pleased to report that she now has a view on the matter.
However, her view is not the purpose of this post.
Rather it is to report that the child painter and photographer Graham Ovenden, whose artistic ability is not in doubt, has been convicted of child sex offences.
