Russell Edwards Q&A Pt 4
What do you dislike about the art world?
The pretentious bullshit!
What do you like about your work?
I will like certain parts of a painting, perhaps the way the light is depicted, or the way a hand has been drawn or an expression captured for example but there will be far more things I’m not happy with.
Should art be funded and what role does arts funding have?
The Arts generally suffers from lack of funding and sad to say, status also. Much more prominence needs to be attributed to art, music and drama in primary and secondary schools.
Name something you love, and why.
Music – listening, playing and composing. It’s been a part of my life forever and always will be. Music can evoke a plethora of memories and feelings ranging from one end of the emotional scale to the other.
