An artist’s artist

March 6, 2013 § Leave a comment

“FOR ME,” said the English artist David Carr, “the greatest paintings are those where the paint becomes what it depicts.” In these videos, Carr discusses his life and work and also his philosophy of what it means to be an artist. Working on Primrose Hill in London (below), he explores the rewards and challenges of painting on location.

His advice to other artists was always the same: “Just do the work,” he would say, and everything else will take care of itself.
