Leigh Hyams on What Good is Art?: “I don¹t know what Painting is except it’s bigger than the universe. It keeps expanding and deepening and if you follow it you expand and deepen. You work with your mind and your muscles and your memory, but mostly you just have to stay out on that cold edge of what you don’t know. Funny things happen to your life when you paint. All of a sudden you are somebody else namely, your real self.”

After three years’ I’ve gone back to painting and this quote says it all.
