Standing in the studio of artists Jasper Joffe and Simeon Banner you find yourself in the company of Royals, murderers, suspender clad women, wispy branches of tender willows, and some yet to be avenged, large abstract canvases. An image fest of subjects and styles, competing characters and unlikely still lifes.
No one tells us what to do" is the slogan of the contemporary artist who is valued for, and values their independence above most other things. Of course, art schools, gallerists, the market, the artist's bank balance, do exert pressure on the direction of the artist. But even then the artist maintains their credibility by appearing headstrong and motivated only by their individual vision.
