In Interview with a Painting Simon Ingram uses the mechanic codes from some of his recent work and repositions them in reverse; an approach rehearsed in his Automata Paintings series from 2003-6. Those paintings were made without a machine and instead with a system-based approach to colour and composition negotiated by the artist with paint and tape. Interview with a Painting unplugs and redirects the artist's machine, rather than looking upwards and outwards to radio energy and space, these new paintings are the outcome of a conversation between artist, machine and painting.
