Jamie HankinArtist’s Statement
I am not a painter by trade. Painting, for me, is an emotional outlet, a physical exercise and an investigation of wonderment. The physical characteristics of paint, its texture, its viscosity and the infinite variations of its tone and hue all appeal to me as a matter of alchemy or cuisine or chemistry, the mixing of things to make new things and the uncertainty and serendipity of the outcome.
