JF Payne in conversation with Dominika Kieruzel

We just came back from a walk in Erith Marshes, a spectacular place, especially in the evening, as it is unusually dark for London, it’s also unusually solitary, except for horses. Talking about time and art I was reminded of the first work I’ve ever seen by JF Payne – ‘Untitled Cast’. It consisted of a thick layer of paint that had been peeled off the canvas and hung on the bare stretchers.
