Hear the artist Paul Winstanley talk about his latest book, 59 Paintings, at the Alan Cristea Gallery, London. Winstanley presents an artist's personal view of how paintings are conceived, made and interpreted. He is known for his detailed, realistic paintings of often overlooked, vacant, but familiar landscapes and interiors, which are rendered in a muted palette. Taking his own works as a starting point, Winstanley presents a series of accessible texts that together reveal what it means to conceive, make and think about paintings. Among the varied subjects that he considers are how a painter seeks out and finds inspiration in life and the world; the relationship between observed and depicted realities; what constitutes 'truth' in a painting; how to approach conceptual and technical challenges; the role of the viewer in the transaction at the heart of painting; and the various belief systems that lie behind the business of creating and looking at paintings. The book launch, talk and book signing will take place at the Alan Cristea Gallery. It is accompanied by an exhibition of the works illustrated in the book, open at the gallery from 23 - 29 March 2018.
