“My imagery is created as a result of the painting process.

 

I do not set these containers and brushes in front of me and make a still life about how they appear. Rather, I try to “build” the forms out of paint.

 

Colors, textures and shapes evolve during my largely abstract process.  I then add light theory to these abstract marks. If there is a collision between de Kooning and Vermeer, I want to be there to see it.

 

Haphazard, naive, or accidental paint applications open a painting up, forcing me to react rather than to dictate.

 

My most successful works seem to result when there is a meeting between total chaos and absolute control."
