"My paintings are at the end of the visible world, close to nothing, which is where I am.

They are membranes between feeling and nothing. No story, no incident, no issue, no statement -  just paint and hessian between you, me and nothing. 

The maximum light is permitted to enter the whole surface-as all divisions, boundaries and forms have been dissolved – by the light and the generative eye. Yet the painting is purely material as it always has to be.” 

Brian Blanchflower, 2002
