My work is currently concerned with the relationship of colour and form and the conversation I have with myself always ends up with
something I call ‘templates’ or ‘accepted norms’. Susan Sontag and Kandinsky both talk about ‘conventions’ which is the same thing
as far as i can see. These being the ‘priors’ that experience brings to the perception of anything – in painting or in viewing an artwork for example.
We cannot get past these – that which has gone before will always have a bearing on how we perceive things in the present.
