CHRISSY GUEST

I am seduced by oil paint. I go beyond photo realism. I'm a painter and I use this medium to give an impression,  I have no interest in meticulous replication.  The great Picasso  felt threatened by the invention of photography. he wondered ' what is the point of painting if reality can be captured by a lens'. I take inspiration from his single mindedness. He became a prolific painter,  he understood that he needed to drag painting beyond what was real, in order to surpass photography. He would continually de -construct forms and take them beyond  reality. He painted in many different styles, always searching for something new.
