Future of the Painting studio

At the moment my painting studio is a shared space in an artists' co-operative. I can spend a long time here or a short time. Neither is necessarily better. I don’t go every day all the time but sometimes I have periods of going daily.

A lot of people are looking out for the indexability of the art or some kind of deeper meaning. I’m trying to get away from meaning. I don’t mean anything, I just do the painting.

Painting here doesn't just refer to socio-cultural production, but to a mode of representation and the aspirational logic of its value form.
