Lewes Exhibition Entry & Mr Rivers
I was asked to answer some questions on a form- some seemed to be quite random like:
-What were you wearing when you made this piece? (Customary jeans and t-shirt teamed with big fluffy slippers)
-What is the biggest pain about being an artist? (Lack of storage space!!!)
-What painting would you hang on your desert island palm tree? (One by my friend Mark Rivers because I love the textures, colours and paints he uses)
Yes, I've been meaning to do a post about Mark, so now seems as good a time as any- here are some close ups of his paintings...
Essentially he mixes as many forms of wet media as he can to see what happens. He also tries using different backgrounds- mainly canvases, but also varieties of paper and even aluminium sheets (as seen on the middle photograph). It's very spontaneous, experimental and just fun to look at!
