" I don't have backstories. occasionally i will give a painting of a solitary figure a name, but that is always after the fact. the image has to come into existence before i have any thoughts about it. i arrive at the image through painting, not through thought. "

" I work on the painting until it generates heat and is speaking for itself. that conversation happens first with me through the process of painting. after that the image is free to generate a multiplicity of stories and meanings as it circulates. "
