world-recordTITLE OF ARTWORK: World Record Breaking attempt at the longest painting title. Consultation with the Oracle aka CIA aka IN-Q-TEL, aka Google on September 2014 gives top results of 38 words, 308 characters. An inoffensive abstract with semi subliminal messages in a nice shade of paint that is easy to hang in a variety of domestic, institutional and corporate settings.  A genuine investment opportunity for those with a keen eye, who appreciate long odds, gimmicks, pretentious titles and a world record. (This titled has been amended to allow for the addition of new words to be added to the title to keep ahead of any future challengers who may attempt to beat the World Record)

The Back of the Label proffered a 10 Refund to the Brave Person with suspect taste who might be tempted to purchase this work.

The Bank of Ireland bought it to my surprise. I couldn’t bring myself to refund a bank. I dallied with the idea of sending shredded money. My personal financial situation made me reassess this option and no refund was paid.

I later heard that the Irish Museum of Modern Art had inquired about showing the painting in an exhibition about Corporate Collecting. They were informed by the Bank that the painting could not be located and was considered lost. They will probably still charge me interest on the reimbursement that they are owed.
