The layers of paint on the surface on my canvas’ are the conversations I have with the paint I apply. Thick or thin, loud or soft or opaque or translucent, the words are there, not always intelligible and sometimes just crude. And the subject is not always what I see but rather a combination of feelings and thoughts. I don’t want to create the scene as it is, I’ll leave that for artists content with rendering images. I want to understand and sometimes that takes just having a faith in mark making that takes on a life of its own. These explorations are just that. The atmospheres, the masses the personal experiences and the subconscious responses to the intrinsic, almost mystical topography are brought together in my mind and on canvas.
