John Glover at Mills Plains

Hilton Owen
Oil & acrylic on canvas • 71 × 92 cm

In this painting I am absorbed by the idea of history; in what enables something to belong to both the past and the present. The landscape, from which Glover worked, changes. Time passes and the trees, plants, animals and people come and go. But is there anything that remains constant? I would argue, yes, his paintings do, even if our perceptions of them change over time.
