Martin Greenland in the John Moores 24 exhibition space

We’ve already brought you Paul O’Keeffe’s artwork of the month talk on John Moores 24 first prizewinner ‘Before Vermeer’s Clouds’. Last week, the artist himself, Martin Greenland, visited the exhibition to give a talk on the painting (mp3/transcript/links).

Over 45 minutes Martin discusses recurring themes in his John Moores entries, the decision to show his work without a frame, visions of Heaven, the Lake District, Exeter and the colourful Islamic architecture of Samarkand.
