Bob  Booth
I have always been attracted to paintings that are blatantly paint and not an imitation of actuality. Now, almost any painter messing around with paint with reckless abandon, attracts my attention and affects my work.
The accidental component in my painting method has continued to develop. ‘Accidents’ of the medium, intuition and memory combine to offer exciting potential for ideas.
I seem to have internalised the long brushes that I used for many years, exploiting the absence of control it offered as part of my philosophy and working method.
For me we don’t paint to please, or to be clever. We don’t paint to make a point, or to teach a lesson. Rather, painting is a calling to work in partnership with a medium: always one step behind the paint for the sake of integrity; accepting the absence of control and rejoicing in what is after all, half by chance.
