I would like to echo my comment made in Part 2. There is something very traditional about paintings having physicality – you only have to look at, for example, Medieval/Renaissance church paintings and the astonishing way they are placed, lit and constructed in order to reach out. (and it was a long time ago that a painting could have two sides, was very long along a wall or hanging off a ceiling.) I think many of these work reach out in a quieter more contemplative way and others pack a punch: as Simon says they all very much connect to the viewer but in different, complex and subtle ways. Tasteful it is not – challenging yes. I am sorry I missed the talk.
