acrylics 70cm x70cm
(small images were taken by my phone camera hence difference in colours...)
One of the questions I was asked when I had my crit was "if my paintings were in the gallery would I like the viewers to touch them?" Of course I would. Every time I'm in the gallery or exhibition one of the basic things is, that I want to touch the painting or sculpture...There is something in touching...it's like getting in touch with artist who created the piece.
Of course, I realise that it would wore off paintings in a very short time...but at times when we can record our creations with cameras they can survive centuries as images.
What I am trying to say is that I would love viewers to interact with paintings, sculptures etc, because a special bound is created by touching, and as more of a painting is revealed, you have to think more and it gives you different experiences every time...
