These essays cover a wide array of artists, such as established painters Ivor Davies and the late Ernest Zobole- younger painters like Neal Howells, Ellyn Lewis, and Sue Williams: installation artist David Hastie- and the internationally acclaimed performance artist Andre Stitt. Also explored is what art might mean to the Welsh people in essays about the representation of Welsh history and culture in the visual arts. The controversial issue of how art is curated in Wales and who decides what the public sees is also discussed.
