'... love contemporary art ... wouldn't want a pickled shark in my house ...'
'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
