On his blogsite Andrew Crane states: “I paint. Sometimes I paint on concrete.” I like how he cuts through the Romantic b.s. that artists can fall into when they try to use words to describe what they do. These days it’s all too easy to call yourself, or anyone else, an “Artist.” To be a Painter, you have to paint. And what you paint with, i.e. the medium itself, and what you put the paint on, in terms of a surface, and how you put the paint on that surface, are the first and most fundamental questions you have to answer. What you paint, as my teacher Robert D’Arista said, “…is the real angel you have to wrestle with.” That’s a question for another time.
