Paintings have begun making friends in their new clothes.
It’s been a while since I’ve had an epiphany, but change is definitely in the air. A few months back the combination of having TOO MUCH OF MY OWN ART and having ready access to left-over spray-paints and gloss paint (that was being chucked out from Damien Hirst’s studio) provoked me to start tossing the… Continue reading A COVER UP OF THE PAST

In the past year, 11 new people have paintings or drawings by me, and for the first half of the year I was very much focussed on… Continue reading CAROLINE JAINE: End of Year Update

There is… Continue reading Why paint a portrait?
