Hand casting and more art by Mike Perkins

Hand casting
Oil on canvas
not for sale

I took up painting upon retirement and now work in my home studio.

I have exhibited and received commissions as opportunities have arisen.

It was Baudelaire who hailed Manet as 'the painter of modern life' and this is the mantra which currently motivates me. I also have concern for the marginalisation of painting in the face of this age of instant imaging. Why do gallery-goers march through exhibitions at great pace firing off their iphones willy-nilly when they have paid to take time to enjoy the originals?
