Painted Vistas


Terry Setch  Interviews-Artists Volume Two 2010


So Penarth Beach is the primary source, but you bring back things to the studio to move forward with the paintings.

Initially the paintings were made on the beach, the canvas was put in the sea, I let all kind of things happen to it. They could have stayed there, quite easily melding in. I set up a number of totems along the beach, the sea knocked them down and then placed them somewhere else. All that was a part of the picture that I couldn’t drag home. However, there were things I could take home, and very soon, after getting involved with what was site specific work  undertaken in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s, I wanted to set up a confrontation between the spectator and the work. I wanted to see what happened when it was taken from one place and put in another place.

David Nash  Interviews-Artists Volume Two 2010


How does a tree grow? Under the bark is what’s called the Cambium Layer, which is full of protein. It’s the only genuinely alive part of the tree. It grows the annual ring of new wood each year. It also maintains the bark.

Feeding from what? From the roots, water is brought up from the roots. The root has fungus on it, fungus which breaks down the minerals into something that the tree can actually digest and work with through photo-synthesis. The Cambium layer is the active bit, fed by the minerals and the light. This sapwood lifts the water. As each new layer of sapwood forms an inner ring, dies and becomes heart wood, it clogs up. It holds water, but it’s not really functioning as a lifter of water. The sapwood is the real lifter of water.

Mat Collishaw  Interviews-Artists Volume Three 2011

Can we talk through this image, which is a  flattened moth wing, and set it in context?

I started doing them originally when my son was born, because we had to dry clean the flat, to make sure there were no bugs around. And I started squashing them  between little 35mm slides. I projected them on the wall, to ten or twelve feet high. Some of them had not quite died yet,  so there was a daddy long legs wriggling. The leg was like seven feet long, really quite powerful. You could see microscopic detail in there, where the body had been punctured and fluid oozed out. And when you got a nice little squash there they were very dynamic images. Then you could print that; take a little slide down to the laser printers on the corner, slip it in their machine and they’d print it. It seemed to me this was a very simple example of the photograph being an act of death: petit morte. This was that thing in the moment it was killed. And being taken from the three dimensional world that it lived in to being physically squashed onto a two dimensional plane. Then I’d blow them up and make them a lot bigger.
