When you create an object with no tangible function,
you move in an arena with no tangible limitations.
My goal is the construction of an item
where the process of fabrication
is of greater importance than the end result.
A painting is..
the aggregation of an improvised investigation
the record, in dried oil and pigment,
of a series of:
the evolution of my understanding of existence
developed over the time frame of the process
the retinal scan, the visual cortex,
the muscles in my arm, the genesis of a mood,
the emotions of my life, the memory of paintings seen,
and the product of my materials.
It is the declaration of what I believe a painting is,
and what I feel is important in life.
observation and reaction
This is now, this is unfinished, this is flux.
