Riffing on Magritte, Jonathan David Lange asks: “What makes a trumpet a true trumpet? The brass or the breath blowing through it? If the brass of a trumpet is replaced with paint, the breath that would have been blown through that trumpet has been captured. Ceci est une pipe.” With this in mind, Lange says that being an artist comes down to two things: 1. You paint what you see. 2. You paint what you want. In his works he attempts to create through colour a marriage between concept and emotion, embracing accidents and relishing the unplanned process of applying paint to a surface.
