Valerie Brennan interviews painter Lisa Denyer about her work and process.

Denyer remarks: "Allowing myself time to notice things in my surroundings is important. I'm interested in the idea of entropy and nature reclaiming the man-made, so details such as broken bricks or peeling paint on buildings really appeal to me. I don't make sketches, although I do sometimes take photos. I think that everything I see informs my practice whether I'm consciously aware of it or not. I try not to plan out work too much or have a set idea of what a finished painting is going to look like."
