often think that there's painting and then there are pictures. The
act of painting to me is more important then the paintings themselves.
Pictures are objects, the residue. The process itself is what calls
me. The idea of trying to create something out of nothing and knowing
that every mark you make could be totally wrong. It's like walking
in the fog with a cliff nearby or taking a trail in the woods and
not knowing what's around the next bend.
is an important word that I use when describing my work. Not only
does the work evolve out of the painting technique itself, but the
resulting images depict imaginary life processes in various stages
of evolution from which new and sometimes surprising forms emerge.
I feel that this dynamic and enigmatic relationship that I develop
is a symbolic equivalent for the interaction of human feelings and
emotions. And since every interaction creates a reaction, my forms
become metaphors for the infiniteness of human behavior as it is formed
and reformed by events of the outer world.
hope that the sense of discovery that I feel when I am making these
paintings are passed on to the viewer.
