Norman Kirkham, In Conversation RGI, Kelly Gallery, Glasgow

Tuesday 20th May – Artist Talk to coincide with Solo Exhibition

“I wakened up one morning in 1975, realising that life was passing me by, and that if I
was going to achieve anything, I had to give up the day job and make a commitment to painting.
I love painting. The smell of linseed oil and turpentine. The tactile quality of paint.”
(Norman Kirkham)
