I haven’t totally been following Bravo’s latest Project Runway knockoff, Work of Art – The Next Great Artist but the few times I have seen it, I’ve been pleasantly surprised. The critiques and artists’ statements can be totally affected and cliche, and the fake Tim Gunn seems to be there solely for his accent, but overall, the work is interesting. And last night’s finale was really good.
While she didn’t win, Peregrine Honig of the wacky hats, cotton candy and horn-playing husband, totally captured my heart—and everyone else’s—with the above piece and her lovely demeanor.
One great thing about the finale? All of the contestants seemed genuine, kind and supportive of one another. I don’t think I heard the phrase “throw under the bus” even once. I wish I never had to hear those words in the same sentence ever again, but I digress.
Kudos to Bravo for this one.
