Issue #15

" Through mechanics and technology men got irritated and lost the understanding of the visual, of the secret, of the materiality; society is no longer open to the elements of painting. Something has gone.  Therefore we have to make paintings again. I believe that the desire for painting will break through one day in different circumstances, with different requirements. But painting will have learned from what has happened in this dark time. No one could see a sunset if it hadn’t been painted by Turner, nobody could recognize water lilies if Monet hadn’t painted them. " Markus Lupertz, Turps Painting Magazine, 2015

Co-Edited by Marcus Harvey and Phil King , Issue #15 will be out in Mid November 2015.
