Subject: RE: British Folk Art
Whilst I'm not aware of consciously emulating or patronising anything, though I do subscibe to the Camus maxim (as quoted by Scott Walker on Scott 3) that A man's work is nothing but this slow trek to rediscover, through the detours of art, those two or three great and simple images in whose presence his heart first opened. Unconsiously of course we are all conduits and repositaries of everything we've ever been exposed to; every one of us is a Tradition Bearer in that sense but our work is always more than the sum total of its parts somehow...
