CREATIVE MATTERS PODCAST
Mandy Jakich in conversation with Matthew Browne
In this podcast, Matthew talks to Mandy Jakich at Creative Matters about how he wants to make paintings that have an untroubled aspect to them in response to the crazy cacophony of everyday life, and for people to feel a moment of solace when viewing and experiencing his work. He shares how his work and process shifted from more figurative, externally motivated paintings over the years to abstract and more internally driven expressions.
We discuss his yearning for a sense of balance, order and stillness which comes about in his current paintings through the relationships of colour. He uncovers the mysteries behind his painting titles, why he recoils when people describe his work as hard edged, why form and shape is so important to him in his work and why he loves to paint on linen and sometimes leave it exposed as the first point of reaction, the bouncing off point.
And of course we talk about how and why he founded Browne School of Art.
Recorded on 15/9/23
