“I’m the sort of artist who won’t finish a painting until I’ve taken it as far as I can. The aim of my art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.

It is as if there is a sort of caged bird for every image and some images will sing louder than others to me. I think all the paintings in the Durbec exhibition are images that have instinctively been valuable to me for this reason.

I want the audience to know what it is they’re looking at. But at the same time, to offer a journey through an abstract experience, toward the landscape of the brush strokes, of the pigment, beyond an ordinary image. Catch people’s attention like a caged bird, because the longer you look at an object, the more abstract it becomes, and, ironically, the more real.” Jafet Blanch

Almost finished. Mixed media 100x80cm.
