This presentation seeks to explore how colour and material communicate and the ways contemporary painters are continuing a dialogue and craft that is both medieval and of current significance.
As painters we learn to indicate our own attitude towards our subject through the way we offer the paint as a substance.
Paint, is not only explored through gesture, through mixing, through different pigments, through glazing, through the interruption of the supports and through different consistency of mediums. It is explored within subject readings so that the material presence of the paint offers up the subtle layers of interpretation that we are able to negotiate.
