An artist's colleagues are invited to 'Rectify this painting'

From Standing Room Only, 1:47 pm on 12 July 2020

Artist Eve Barlow has trusted 14 artists to take her not quite finished paintings, and complete them in any way they like.

For some it was a fun way to spend the lockdown period, for others it proved to be tougher than they'd imagined.

All of the works are about to go on show at Christchurch's City Art Depot in an exhibition called Rectify This Painting.

Lynn Freeman spoke to Eve Barlow, and to one of the artists she invited to take part, Keren Oertly.  She first asked Eve what - if any - instructions she gave her collaborators.

Rectify This Painting opens at the City Art Depot  on Tuesday.
