Just been to a talk by James Guppy surrounded by his 20 years of paintings. He was fascinating & humorous. I love the way he described how he progresses from one series of work to the next -how sometimes new works “sneak” in and then it appears time to move on. He described recurring motifs – such as teacups, flowers etc as a cast of characters that he draws on to appear in new roles. Just one recent painting of the rhino and teacup has “snuck” into this exhibition and it tells of things to come.
