Mike Philbin - Introversions & Dichotomies 2016 re-paints - indefinite stay of execution granted




I was going to re-paint these three awful 90cm x 60 cm emulsion-on-canvas 4-colour swirl-things, as I have many others to date. I planned how to do it and was just about ready to buy the over-painting paint-pairs.

But then I wasn't really sure that (in the end) deciding the fate of artwork should be my role in life. Whose to say there isn't someone out there for whom these pieces (that I don't like, and others I've destroyed/re-painted) mean a great deal. A painter paints, and that's a painter's lot...

I should confess my sins, this post is my penance.
