Gary Wragg on painting

“Chance and landing up in a mess is where for me the riches are in painting from which to locate a personal sense of order. The magnetism of the painted surface invites exploration of freedom and discipline where the feel of the paint and space stimulate a direct-ness, void of storytelling. It is as you see it. At times the paintings become overworked, making it a challenge to end up with a fresh statement, that I hope has precision, clarity of colour, luminosity of inner light, and a feeling of air to breath.” ~ Gary Wragg
