In Conversation with Louis Turpin

This event will give the audience an opportunity to hear Louis Turpin and Julian Day, curator of Rye Art Gallery “In Conversation” and discuss Louis’ 􏰷􏰁new exhibition Gardens – Landscapes which opens on 11th September.

“The process of painting is so thoroughly ingrained in me that when posed the question ‘Practice?’, I am taken short. I am obliged to think through the events that take place between moving in the garden, walking through a landscape and standing at my easel. Here, in front of the painting of the moment I have to ask the closing question, is this painting complete? The finishing of the painting is as big and mysterious a question as its birth.”  
Louis Turpin 2021
