image for Picture Improver for Tate Modern
Tate Modern for Update

The picture restorer from Spain who made a portrait of Christ look like a HOMO their pictures.

'We have been trying to work out for some time the true meaning of some of our paintings and objects' said curator Humprey Goose 'now we can see if any improvemets are possible.'

Spanish housewife Marcusa Matador has ambitions for a well known pile of bricks. She is hoping to build on her reputation in Spain by helping the bricks into a recognisable structure.

She also has her eye on Picasso, who, she feels, could have been more accurate with the placing of eyes in the heads of the ladies he depicted in his work.

'I also want to encourage the Tate to allow me to draw on some of the blanks that artists have left' said Senora Matador 'I have many ideas and my great HOMO is only the beginning.'

Rumours abound in artistic circles that a revolution in artistic practise is about to hit the world of creative activity. Asil Nadir is offering to pay a high price for a work that will 'liberate the imagination'.
