Patrick Samuel, Escape and Return at the Dugdale Centre in Enfield


Price: Free Admission


Escape and Return poster

“Art is my medium of escape; from the noise, the lights, the fumes and the constant stream of information. It’s deafening and blinding. The pushing and the shoving, and the race to get everywhere first and have everything now. I want it all to stop.

Painting and drawing lets me soar past the planets, where I can let my hands glide across the stars as I say goodbye to it all. Watch it fade away. And I do get that far when I realise how much I’d leave behind back on Earth; the trees, the sound of laughter and the colour of sound, the colourable real, the mythical and fantastic. I realise how much I’d miss it all. How much I’d miss you. This is my return.”
