ecnu asked: hello, I would like to purchase a painting, please could you send me your contact details? I will be in Bristol 30th Dec- 3rd Jan so time is of the essence.
I’m not really selling paintings at the moment. Prints possibly. Also I don’t feel comfortable sharing contact details with someone I haven’t spoken to before in regards to my work, especially over tumblr.
Anonymous asked: Do you sell your paintings?
No (or not yet), but only because I don’t feel I’m that skilled or experienced enough in my “practice”, ideas & execution of them to do so. I won’t lie and say I don’t want to sell my work because I do think about that eventuality. I might sell limited edition prints of things soon (or try to), depending if anyone would be interested and whether I think the paintings translate accurately enough to print. Insofar as the originals stand I don’t think they’re necessarily polished/refined enough to sell, if that makes sense.
Anonymous asked: I don't really understand your paintings but they're fantastic to look at.
Thank you!! Also on the subject of “understanding” artwork, I think it’s a huge problem in the art world that people feel they need to understand art/painting to enjoy them (or not). It’s horribly exclusive, so I’m really glad you can tell me you don’t. If all people get from what I do is some kind of I dunno, [pleasurable] aesthetic experience then that’s cool with me.
