Considering Art Podcast – Eugene Palmer, painter

One of Britain’s leading black artists, Eugene Palmer, talks about his childhood in Jamaica, how a school teacher inspired him to become an artist, how he evolved from abstract to figuration, the influence of black history and politics on his work, his innovative series of placing black figures in rural landscapes and his recent works of repeated images and portraits of family members that pose questions about race and identity.
