Artist’s talk 29 September 2016, 1pm

Why do painters paint? Is it not easier to hold up a phone and take a photo, preferably with a human slant? What is so strange about the natural world that when it is painted, it can seem almost alien to us? It is another world sliding parallel to ours. It is disquieting. It reeks of dead things. The sun can kill. The wind can obliterate electricity. Animals stare because they simply see another animal – you.
