John Copeland – Paintings & Drawings

Yes, there is no technology in this post more interesting than pencils and brushes. Which is why this stuff is amazing. John Copeland is the kind of painter I wish I could be. Aware, talented and prolific. I was blown away by his figure work and the painting above betrays his sense of humour [edit: image was removed by artist’s request]. There’s a great interview with him at Fecal Face which reveals of few of his opinions and he talks about his Journals (which are art pieces unto themselves). If in doubt about your creativity, draw on paper.

John Copeland Journal Sample

Excerpt from Fecal Face about his Journals:
Barron Storey got me started on those in 96, and I’ve been keeping them ever since. Small scale intensive sketchbooks where each page is made into a finished statement. Best part of that practice is the discipline and learning to follow through with each page till it works, experimentation and play. Anything goes in those, so you learn to play with images while working hard.
