The new Turps Banana is here and is ripening in the sun. The new issue brings us machine paintings, umbrellas, digital replication and abstraction. Inside there are conversations between Matthew Lippiatt and Ansel Krut, Nick Fudge and Romer + Romer, and David Salle and Turps Banana. Elsewhere Marcus Harvey reflects on Francis Bacon's 'Two Figures' and the machine paintings of Roberta Booth and Simon Bell looks at Fine Art Education and 'Research Culture'.
Turps Banana is a magazine about painting which is largely made by painters. Eschewing heavy theory in favour of conversation, this is an approachable, personal and endlessly fascinating contemporary art magazine.
