Julian Hooper is interviewed for Ocula.com. In this Ocula Insight interview Hooper explains his process and themes associated with his new exhibition at Gallery 9, Lazy Racer.
“Rather than seeking out specific material, I find stuff through a process of trawling through books and the Internet. Often I will process this material into quick line drawings to become familiar with the material, and to refer to when I’m painting. The initial source of imagery could be anywhere and I value the access that we have, yet my motivations are to make paintings that evoke something familiar and personal. Regional painting in the digital age.”
