Three Contemporary Painters

Today The Rebel magazine shines a spotlight on the work of three painters under 40, all of whom are doing rather well. Brian Eno once advised us to, “Stop thinking about art works as objects and start thinking about them as triggers for experiences. What makes a work of art good for you is not something that s already inside it but something that happens inside you.” If you walked past a skip this afternoon and saw all of the three paintings which would you pick out and take home with you? Don't make your selection on the idea of, "It might be worth something one day" pick the one you'd like to spend time with because it moves or inspires you.
