Matt Jones interviews painter Kadar Brock about his work and practice.

Brock comments: "I don't think about the body in a direct or traditional sense, but... they are very physical paintings. I make them laying on top of them, pushing into them, scraping away at them, sanding them and so on. And I touch them, a lot. I think a lot about paintings as hugs, as points of empathy. This probably sounds very sappy, but it ties into... a sense of reassurance almost, that I hope to give a viewer with the work. And that's a very physical sensation."
