Hi Lisa. I logged on to see what you've been doing lately. I see you found Rich, he's brilliant and also a good friend. I like the experimental flowers series and your comment on the roundup! You seem to be growing and evolving. Have you kicked your tutor yet? lol Susan

Hello Lisa
The painting is 7ft and is part of a group of 3, although not a triptych I may show them like that. The original idea came from a giotto painting and I was looking for a number of situations were we use the crucifiction pose, I took the first painting 'fluffer' from the original giotto, the second 'harbinger' came from a accident a woman had where she died falling off a wall, and the third was me googling the pose and i found this prisoner of war tortured by the americans. They all have a bit of work to do, I mainly start with some idea then often it changes even into something completely different. Techniques are more or less everthing from photo realism to glazing, airbrush to abstract pictorial inventions. I like a painting to have all these things in and some mystery as to what it is the viewer is looking at. I could go on but the missus says my dinner is ready. Im glad you like the painting thank you,

Hello Lisa. They are all oil. The Greek bench is on canvas and the rest are on canvas paper. All are from life, the Greek bench was on the island of Kos after a long day at the beach sketching children I stopped at sunset on the walk home and caught that lonely looking bench. The children on the beach were sketched and also caught in photographs for reference later. The bridge is blatently from a photo as I wouldn't have been able to sketch in that wind! All of them are fairly small, about 10 by 12 inches. I'm off to look at your work now.....

Thanks for getting in touch.

I think it is important not to polarise the debate too much.

All art is conceptual - your paintings relate to the concept of a tree - and all art is made - even artifacts commisssioned by 'conceptual' artists.

The important thing from my perspective is to spend one's time doing things that are rewarding in or out of artworld criteria.

Personally I don't think Art or the artworld are fundamental concepts.

I'm more interested in aesthetic interest, and the play and discovery of making. I haven't got an art career. I've got a life, I 'make art' as part of that.

I used to spend some time doing philosophical aesthetics.

Academic philosophy discusses things in a more rigourous way than arttalk.

Again it's a question of what you want to spend your time doing.

I like dipping into things but not being too tied down.

I particularly enjoyed the delicacy of your paintings

All the best ROB

Hi Lisa,
Thanks for the comments on my work. I am enjoying your work as well.
The lines on my work are made with sharpie markers and oil paint markers. The Hudson River was basically an open industrial sewer by the 70's/ Efforts by many and most notably singer Pete Seegar and his sloop he Clearwater and JFK Jr. Through River Keeper have forced companies to stop dumping. A combination of public outcry, activism and lawsuits are at work here. The river has recovered enough in 30 years that you can swim in it again and fish. It is quite remarkable and beautiful. The river belongs to the people, not companies or industry. Check out riverkeeper.org for more info. that might be applied to the Mississippi. I hope everyone who looks at this comment will check them out.
