Artist Roy Anderson share his creative journey, processes and inspiration and reveals some of the many works stored in his garage archive.
Is an artist his work?
If you understand your pictures, do you understand yourself? Well, it’s worth finding out.
So I forage among my old paintings to discover what I really am. Well, I’m 82 now and trying to look over the shoulder of the youngish man I was half a century ago. It’s all in the past you see. Apart from a few political posters in the marching years I haven’t painted anything except our old veranda.
Already I’ve learned one thing. I was damned careless. Much of my work isn’t dated or signed and my intention for a perfectly chronological catalogue looks dashed.
