Judy MacMillan – Nana 2
It is about vision. How the human eye sees, subjectively, not how the camera sees. It is about skill, requiring a great deal of practice to synchronise the eye with the hand held brush, just as playing an instrument or sport requires practice. My intention should be instantly clear to the viewer without additional explanations.It is about communication of one heart to another heart expressed in paint.
