About the Author

Craig Staff is Senior Lecturer in Fine Art at the University of Northampton an artist and author of Modernist Painting and Materiality (2011).


'While painting, as a practice, appears now in a host of widespread plural guises and contexts, attempts to theorise its global terrain have generally been avoided of late. Craig Staff's timely interrogation of the practice does not shirk this responsibility... For those who want a highly informed and erudite view of this unstable and ever-evolving landscape, this is essential reading.' David Ryan, Reader in Fine Art, Anglia Ruskin University 'The book's phenomenal achievement is to steadily guide the reader through a multitude of competing theories and debates around what painting is, whilst being grounded in the diverse practices of individual artists as they speculatively push at the frontiers of hat painting might become.' Dan Hays, artist
