Paul Winstanley will discuss his work in relation to his new book 59 Paintings. In this he has attempted to describe the various processes of thought and practice that translate observation, experience, ideas and belief systems into imagery and painting. He will present a selection of paintings from throughout his career and discuss these and some of the thinking behind them with William Feaver.
Born in Manchester in 1954, Paul Winstanley studied painting at Cardiff College of Art from 1973 to 1976, and at the Slade School of Art in London between 1976 and 1978. He won the first prize of the Unilever Award at the Whitechapel Open in 1989, and two years later was appointed Kettle’s Yard artist-in-residence at the University of Cambridge. He has work in public and private collections in Europe and the United States. He is represented by Mitchell-Innes + Nash, New York; 1301PE, Los Angeles; Kerlin Gallery, Dublin; Galerie Vera Munro, Hamburg; and Alan Cristea Gallery, London. He lives and works in London.
