For me, painting is an opportunity to give a visible presence to what cannot be seen. The forces shaping the cosmos, the quantum world, even the great myths serve as starting points. But once started, I let the paint take over. Layer upon layer, solvents, gravity, chance — nature is harnessed, not represented. As the work progresses, accident and experiment take over. The end point has to be something new that could not have been imagined at the beginning.
