Clyth Hoult, 2007

ARTIST'S STATEMENT:

I work exclusively in oil. It can take a few days to dry between applications but this can be good thinking time – planning for the next stage in the painting. … There is always the temptation to assign meaning to the work of artists, but some, like me, resist this as much as possible. The real reason I paint lies in the love of putting colour onto canvas, and the smell of the paint.
