Thursday Thought:: Stephen Farthing

‘Another cause,’ Farthing concludes, ‘is that by the end of the eighties there were a lot of deeply reactionary people in art schools who were lamenting the passing of “good” painting, etching and stone carving, and they were getting out their drawing books and charcoal … so a lot of early networking was exactly that: lets get back to good drawing.’
