John Copeland

John Copeland is the kind of painter I wish I could be. Aware, talented and prolific. I was blown away by his figure work and the painting above betrays his sense of humour. There’s a great interview with him at Fecal Face which reveals of few of his opinions and he talks about his Journals (which are art pieces unto themselves).
When I started this blog it was to share my enthusiasm about brilliant people and cool stuff. John Copeland is why I keep looking for inspiration, because sometimes you find it.

John Copeland Journal Sample

Excerpt from Fecal Face about his Journals:
Barron Storey got me started on those in 96, and I’ve been keeping them ever since. Small scale intensive sketchbooks where each page is made into a finished statement. Best part of that practice is the discipline and learning to follow through with each page till it works, experimentation and play. Anything goes in those, so you learn to play with images while working hard.
