” My work is broadly concerned with the agency of the present moment. By sampling various cultural and temporal trajectories, I’m exploring the notion of the now as a remix of past and future potentialities. This facilitates a renegotiation of perceptual truths resulting in an expression of things not quite truth, yet not quite fiction. Central to this is the underlying theory of emptiness (sunyata). Often considered a void, Sunyata offers endless possibility.” – Paul Kaptein

” I was born in 1973 in Bristol, England. In 1994, my life changed when I went to study under the direction of Master Patrick Betaudier in Monflanquin, France. Here at the Atelier Neo Medici, I was taught a modern version of the Renaissance technique known as the Technique Mixed. This technique, which combines detailed under painting with transparent oil glazes, dates back to the time of the 15th century Flemish master Jan van Eyck. Patrick not only taught me how to paint but also how to see things. Technique has become an extremely important factor in my painting, since discovering it, I have enjoyed painting a variety of subjects; mainly figurative but also still life. I currently exhibit my works at the Plus One gallery, London & Galerie Daniel Besseiche in France.” – Toby Boothman
