Artist Statement

 

Left turns at night.

I only work from life, which is a half-truth.

I make left turns more than right turns, mostly at night. At those stoplights that don’t have a green turn signal I wait for a break in the oncoming traffic, and go.

 

The painting is me in space.

 

Continuity is contingent on interruptions, or is it the other way around?

 

‘What if’s and ‘why not’s.

 

Looking begins with naming.

 

Painting is simultaneity experienced viscerally.

 

Does knowing something is abstract make it more real?

 

Does something verifiable open up the possibility for abstract thought?

 

The image is everywhere; I wonder what stays.

 

Contours and silhouettes,

Echoes and parallel possibilities,

Spaces interrupted and painterly interventions.
