Victor Pasmore on painting

“If we take a sheet of paper and scribble on it vigorously we become involved in the process of bringing into being something concrete and visible which was not there before… we find ourselves directing its course… until finally an image appears which surprises us by its familiarity and touches us as if awakening forgotten memories…” ~ Victor Pasmore

Victor Pasmore on painting

 

Victor Pasmore in his studio

“I do not paint directly from nature; I endeavour to paint in relation to natural forms. I have only an uncertain idea before I begin. I proceed as the painting demands until I have realised it in as complete and satisfying a form as I can.” ~ Victor Pasmore
