Quote: Michael Simpson

"It takes such a long time to find your language, it’s taken me a long time, and I still think I’m finding it, but I know that I’m closer to a language which is coherent and recognisably mine, but I’ve made many many mistakes along the way.

It’s been quite a struggle. I do feel that when you look at a painting the first thing that you must see is the painting itself and then the image later, and if that happens then the painting is halfway to working."
