  • QUESTION & ANSWER WITH TONY SOUTH

     

    Q: Why do I paint what I paint?

    A: Hmmm, I guess I liken my themes to a clearing out of the loft or maybe a garage sale, a convergence of "mind garbage" collected over many years daydreaming.

    Q: Are there any details that have an important significance in Britannia revisited

    A: Yes, the Union Jack/flag and the Triumph motorcycle were once symbols of an industrious and thriving British empire.The monkey in the Britannia attire marks the devolution of these symbols and an ending of an era, for better or worse!

    Q: What do you hope the viewer takes away from your work

    A: A lighter wallet would be good...In all seriousness though, if the viewer walks away and remembers the painting weeks/months or years later then I couldn't ask for more.

    Q: What is your dream project?

    A: As a young man I used to dream of my drawings/ paintings adorning the album covers of my favourite rock bands, I remember sending stuff to Thin Lizzy etc when I was around 13/14 years old...to no avail though.  Album covers were also a big inspiration for me starting out, holding artists Roger Dean, Jim FitzPTrick, Frazetta and Vallejo in high esteem.

    Q: If you can see your work hanging in one museum/collection which would it be?

    A: I don't mind really where my works hang, as long as the owners enjoy it and still get a kick from it.
