ARTIST Q+A

What book are you reading now?

I have bookmarks between rather too many different pages, though probably three authors dominate my thoughts: Italo Calvino- especially Invisible Cities - all those permutations for living and geometries of community, also Marcovaldo or the Seasons in the City - the poetry of dislocation & transformation. William Gibson - for his tales teaching about the geographies of data, transformation & presence in cyberspace. Ovid and Ted Hughes beautiful Tales from Ovid - stories of presence, transformation, self & other from long before social media...

What is on your playlist right now?

Patti Smith 25th floor - played too loudly. I'm of the generation that grew up with music held on strips of rusty plastic - cutting & pasting - so fixate on songs, and phrases rather than album listings. I think I use the sound rather than properly listen in context: Patti certainty drives many studio sessions.

What is your earliest memory of art?

As a young child taken to a London gallery - Art tied up with notions of power, privilege & access- sense of awe & confusion- Should I be here, could I share this experience too? What's changed. Hmmm..

About Nigel P

I've been making art works for a number of years. I've also spent time as an educator, introducing others to the tangle of ideas & habits of thought commonly described as an art education. For some reason none of this has enabled me to fully address the questions I now face regarding the future direction of my own career as a painter. May be it's actually complicated the matter in hand. Looking over my folio, works pull in different directions - do I revel in the apparent diversity, try to hone one particular theme or continue mining for some underlying synthesis? One thing I am is stubborn - here's hoping persistence pays off.

I'm posting here so that I can share the working out process, learn from others and hopefully develop a sustained/sustaining dialogue to make it through the long dark nights in the studio..

I also write an (intermitent) blog about my creative trials and adventures: nigelpainting.wordpress.com
