Who are you and what do you do?
Jonathan McCree, London, UK. 49yo. I paint, draw, make furniture (which I then paint), take photographs (which I then print). I even did some sound recordings recently.
What inspires you?
Anything and everything, most especially the rhythms of working everyday.
What themes do you pursue?
Repetition, ritual, pattern. Always trying to find out what a painting can be. I like to start by saying ‘I don’t know’ and then I keep saying it.
I am mesmerised by the possibilities of art and I cant think of anything else I want to do when I wake up.
Name some artists you would like to be compared to.
I can only name some whose work I like… Roger Hilton, John Cage, I’ve been listening to a lot of Steve Reich’s work recently.
