PEX through Paintings #8 – “The abundance of summer”

Wednesday 5 February 2020

Today’s painting to frame reflections from PEX 2020 is Lacroix’s “The abundance of summer”. The reason for that is simple: one thing that the PEX meeting made absolutely clear is the abundance of opportunities and the wealth of insights, expertise, experiences and resources that exists across the set of participants. In that respect, it is a question of nourishing, harvesting, harnessing and utilising them appropriately to drive things forward.
