BRIGHTON ART FAIR 2012: ARTIST OF THE WEEK

An interview with Geoff is featured in the Brighton Art Fair: MADE ‘Blogspot’ in the ‘Artist of the Week‘ feature. The interview included a couple of questions about his favourite artists:

One favourite living artist? “I have many favourite artists. At the moment I have been looking again at Gary Wragg’s work. He is an intuitive abstract painter who works with great integrity and is not influenced by fashion.”

One favourite historical artist? Again, like the previous question, there are so many. I am tempted to say Turner or Matisse but I am thinking about Rembrandt’s portraits as I make my current work. His paint surface and ‘touch’ is incredible. The greatest painters stand out of their historical time and stay relevant decades and centuries later.”

Also, a recent painting, ‘Red Sea’ (acrylic on canvas), is in the  ’Image of the Day‘ section.
