I will also be the attending artist at the Odlum Brown evening reception on Wednesday night before the Sunset Concert so if you are lucky enough to have an invite in your back pocket, see you there.
I am often asked how long a painting took.
I love this question because the asker is engaged, intrigued, curious and their imagination is firing. It is a compliment that I always endeavour to return by offering as much honest insight into the work and the process as possible.
But it hit me last week as I worked alone in the studio, pushing to understand complexity in painting and trying to produce the work which respects you, that in truth the question of time is best answered by how deep I went.
How many hours have I not spoken for? How stiff is my body from painting? How long have I been hungry for? How long did I think for? How many friends don’t I have? How many social functions have I missed? How many avenues did my brain race? How deep have I gone because complexity and respectful work can’t be found on the surface or in the simple passage of time?
A painting can be measured in time but it’s value is in what made way so that this one could exist.
This measure starts to measure the painting.
