I come at painting from the wrong way around. I do not set out to illustrate anything - not an object, a scene, nor an idea. The painting is a record of events in the studio and of experiments both intuitive and calculated - with color, with the physical properties of paint on a surface, and with random shapes and gestures. Throughout most of the process, the subject of the painting is the painting itself. Marks, colors, and shapes accumulate, are modified, are erased by abrasion or layering, are consolidated and connected to one another. Over time a working surface is built, destroyed, and rebuilt.
