The process of making art is (needless to say) inspiring to see. QG is always pleased to be able to provide insights into artists’ studios as well as glimpses into artists’ works in progress. Recently, Stephen Tester dropped into QG with a plate recently rediscovered and reworked to the extraordinary finish now editioned and titled Dragon II. The opportunity called for some closer observation and thorough conversation with Graeme Peebles and Theo Mantalvanos.
