And it is believed that Bratman might just use one or two pieces, showing images of rape, mugging and brutality, to furnish the house they bought from The Osbournes. "It was clear he was there to check out Peterson's The Occupation exhibition, which opened last week (ends23Jan09)," Contactmusic quoted one gallery regular who witnessed Bratman's art interest.
He said: "The artist's pieces look colourful and interesting from a distance, and closer inspection shows scenes of street violence. It's quite disturbing. "He left the gallery without buying anything, but you could tell he was very interested. Maybe Christina will have to OK his strange choice in art before he buys."
