On the subject of this gift made by the UK Government J.A.C has said
"The past year has been amazing: a Lumen Prize Top 100 Global Artist award, then a third place at TheSpace event at the Tate and now this - I am very honoured to have this work provided to world leaders by my government'
"The joy in what I do arises from being outside, and having the time to look more intently at the places I visit. The art created is a popular by-product. Tablet computers & mobile phones promise to have the same affect that tubed paint did after its advent in 1841: they set artists free of the studio. Ten minutes painting outside on my ipad is worth a year painting in a studio. I have painted in places where I could never take traditional paints: in the middle of a rising tidal river; atop Snowdon Mountain at -5 degrees Centigrade; on a pedestrian island - I simply paint quickly whenever & wherever the light inspires me."
