A small artist-run publishing team currently producing both Turps Banana and the newer Mass, exploring sculpture. Opening this 27th issue is a quote from British painter and printmaker John Walker, taken from a 2008 interview with the magazine:
‘I can't help thinking often of Cézanne, who spent all his life trying to paint a Salon picture. He'd been rejected so many times, it was sort of 'I'll show you!' I mean, why bother to let those people keep hurting you? But out of that desire came great paintings.'
