‘I love paint, it isn’t mysterious it’s just paint: pigment, filler and dryers and in varying degrees depending on need and quality, and of course colour – black and white are colours too – black and white is probably my favourite. All painting except house painting I respond to in varying degrees of interest and fascination. Historically my preferences pretty much begins with Giotto, on through the Primitive Italians, Rembrandt’s etchings – and many of Fred Williams London etchings – and then on to the early Western Expressionists to the American Abstract Expressionists and a handful of English artists, mostly figurate such as Roger Hilton, Stanley Spencer, and Edward Burra, even David Hockney even Francis Bacon even Andy Goldsworthy.’
