Harry Ally - "For me painting is the primal impulse to mark.  It’s a visual record of the mind, the body, and the human spirit.  It’s about a need to both create and to destroy.  Maybe it’s out of sheer frustration that I paint, maybe it’s out of a need to violate or to contradict, or possibly, it’s simply about the pure enjoyment of mark-making, either way, there is a strong feeling present and I feel compelled to react to this feeling."
