While painting I think about the context, the painting and all kinds of personal relationships. My mind sometimes focuses on what I’m doing and then wanders. That’s the connectedness and disconnectedness; the in-focus and out-of-focus.

What makes us authentic? How does an artist compete with the hyper reality of images on the web and speak to us about who we are in contemporary culture? That is a question I asked world famous artist Ross Bleckner. Throughout his career, he has explored the themes of change, loss and memory. His imagery is often symbolic and elusive to capture the transient nature of our lives. “You see so many images, but you have to remember that at the end of the day, you cannot take the humanity away from the experience of our lives,” says Bleckner. “And there is a big difference between the production of real art and other forms of art. There is something about the human touch and the connection between people that does not get replaced [by web images].”
