I use a strong, expressionistic
color palette to underscore my primary theme . . . the
awkward tensions and gross inequalities behind social
relationships. I employ ambiguous figurative arrangements to illustrate these narratives, allowing the viewer to use their own prejudices and experiences in discovering each work's meaning.
For my part, I find it very easy to lose myself in the paint.
You find yourself caught in the action. You concern yourself
with the little details: the right stroke, the most expressive
color. Then, when the labor is finished, you step back and
realize what you’ve been trying to say all along.
