In conversation with Jack Goldsmith and Oliver Crowther, Artist Facilitator.
OC: How would you describe your work?
JG: Particularly great. It just shows textures and colours and all.
OC: Skulls are a recurring theme in your work. What is it about skulls that interest you?
JG: Skulls show what your head looks like on the inside. A skull shows weirdness, I guess.
OC: Your work is often quite graphic in appearance. How do you decide on your use of colour and line?
JG: I use my head and put what looks good together. I try to make work inspired by world famous artists.
OC: Paint seems to be the material you most often use. Why is this?
JG: Paint shows great colours and the skills you have on the inside of you.
OC: Is there anything else you would like to add?
JG: Just become an artist your own way.
