Target Practice - Alex Colville

The practice of target shooting is one that engages many people as a means to develop their skills
of concentration through physical and mental co-ordination. At one level, the literal level, this picture
depicts the exercise of skill that can, in a sense, be compared with the skill of painting which also
demands an acute sensitivity of co-ordination between eye and hand.At another level, however,
the painting can be viewed as expressing the relationship between the two men whom we recognize
as a father and his son. The image points to the sense of continuity between generations in which
the older man comes to realize his position as a supportive figure, able to advise on the basis
of his experience but where the responsibility for action has been passed onto the skills of the
younger man, onto the next generation. Special thanks to David Burnett for his insightful
writings on the works of Alex Colville.
