In this episode, Scottish painter Ken Currie talks about how his tough background shaped his view that violence is part of the human condition, he tells the stories behind early works such as Glasgow Triptych and Scottish Mercenaries, about the nightmarish Krankenhaus, the rituals behind Bird People, the terror of his Down in the Woods Triptych, the ambiguity within his new series Black Boat, his occasional portraits, and he lists some of the paintings that continue to haunt him.
