'... love contemporary art ... wouldn't want a pickled shark in my house ...'
'... It is not hard to understand Art ... If it hangs on a wall it's a painting, if you can walk around it it's a sculpture ...'

'For me, it's always the landscape. It's inescapable and sublime. Our entire lives are spent within it's cradling hands yet it's always new. It's inspiring, sometimes over-whelming and always un-diminished. I've wandered in the landscape for half a century and still chase it's mysteries. Joy, here are my postcards, figurative and abstract.' Andrew Scarborough
