Toby Haynes Statement

Go Top

      My father was a signwriter, and I grew up surrounded by the smell of paint & turpentine; I have early memories of climbing ladders & scaffolding to help him work on rooftop signs or the panelled sides of heavy goods vehicles. Health & Safety would have been horrified. Although I went on to read German & Philosophy at Oxford, it was probably inevitable that I would end up as a painter. My work is uncompromisingly figurative, but varied in stylistic treatment, content, & medium. No picture ever turns out exactly as originally conceived: I am not in control of the process, nor would I want to be. It is the journey that is interesting. I will change my technique or the colours on my palette if it starts to feel too familiar & comfortable. The materials & subject have a say in what becomes of them, and painting is always a form of negotiation or collaboration between us. I am not so much interested in fleeting impressions as in what lies beneath them: everything we see is full of cultural & personal references, just as words are to a poet; and I want to tap into that ? an ostensibly simple lamb or apple is abuzz with symbolism. But images must also ultimately have a life of their own, and make their own connection with the viewer without exegesis, independently of the artist.
