Overview

"Fifty years ago I went to art school where I learnt to embrace uncertainty. I was introduced to a world of creative possibilities of which art was just a part and I learnt that almost anything or any pursuit had the potential, by virtue of intention and application, to be art. This was the late 1960s when the consensus was that ‘painting was dead’ and it seemed only right that this sentiment should be checked. Conceptual art challenged painters to think differently about painting – and that meant me."

"I subsequently absorbed this understanding into my painting which is why my paintings have been referred to as post-conceptual. It has permitted me to not only paint, draw and make prints but to write, publish, make murals, build motorcycles, illustrate books and design stamps – with the same intention – to beguile. What distinguished art for my generation was its potential to influence the way we would think and behave – to alter consciousness."
