What Painting does talk held at Wimbledon College of Art…

Great talk and conversation on what painting does. Insightful view by three artists on their work over time.  What came across was a love of the medium and the enjoyment and struggle each artist has to realise a strong painting.  How they push the potential of paint constantly everytime they approach a canvas.

Lovely quotes from Fiona Rae…. ‘Painting marks are a record of time passing and that you are still alive”.  “Paint behaves and misbehaves” “We bring our problems to the paint – paint on it’s own is perfect… it has motive power”

To follow are images from the talk and my notes…
