Nick’s poem, Vistas, reflects on how controversy surrounding the Turner Prize is a great thing for stirring artistic debate. Nick says: “We all have our own point of view, both in art and in general. Our own way of seeing the world can become so entrenched so as to detach us from those around us. But art is something able to connect us all – try as you might, you cannot fail to have an opinion on art. Art can involve everyone, making it cosmopolitan and open for all”. Nick asks us to cast off our blinkers and try to see the world in a new light.
