Conversations with Art hosted by Tim Cousins | Friday 28 October 2016

Tim Cousins will beging the fourth season of Conversations with Art with a discussion on his painting Deptford Crane 2016,. Cranes have featured in his work since the 1960s. He was particularly attached to the crane on Creekside when he lived on Crossfields Estate. This crane then become a part of his workplace at APT. He made a number of drawings of it in the early 2000s, some remaining ones will be on display in his studio.

In the conversation he will explore the nature of representation. Does artistic representation depend on a kind of blindness and lack of intellect? 'I have grown to believe that a really intelligent man makes an indifferent painter, for painting requires a certain blindness- a partial refusal to be aware of all the options.' (Mrs Talmann in The Draughtsman's Contract). The painting in question will be the subject for the conversation, however three other large paintings of cranes will be on view at the back of the studio.
