Now 96, remarkably the Royal Academician’s latest show is full of recent paintings, which Frank Auerbach has told him are his most original yet. He talks about his artistic practice, the influence of his mother’s work and how hard he finds it to finish a painting.
Meryl McMaster.
McMaster, who often transforms herself into hybrid  animal-human creatures for her photographs, discusses her show, As Immense as the Sky, at the Ikon Gallery, and how her mixed European and Plains Cree ancestry feeds into her work.

The Zimbabwe-born, London-based artist talks about her new work for her solo show at Gasworks in London and why her paintings for this year’s Venice Biennale almost reduced her to tears.
