“When the paper is peeled back from the plate, the inks are now telling me a different story.” – John Olsen
“On the far left you can see the artist with brush in hand, his wife advising him as to an approach. A female water colourist who formerly painted in oils is at front, above her is a contemplative student readying to make a mark. Behind him is an art dealer flush with cash and a muse/painter sizes up the three ‘fallen from grace’ Graces. Completing the print is a conceptual artist who stares at us as he ruminates over his future realisations.” – John Olsen
