Painter, Lecturer in Art and Philosophy

“ ...It is false to think of reality as objectively knowable and describable unmediated and uncoloured, not just by the viewers’s mind but the culture, values and ideology embedding that mind. This isn’t the reasoning, thought, of Descartes, Hume, Kant etc., on which our own society is based; nor of simple common-sense. They take seeing as value-neutral and disinterested, and reality/truth as separate from ideology and ethics, when really, deep down, there can be no gap between them....”
David Rodway   (In a letter to the Independent)  12th April 1999
