The Statement:

 

Much of the work is a study of the aloneness.  Faces and figures caught in a moment of quiet existence.    Meanwhile, a galaxy of life swirls within, unbidden, infinite.  

I have always been disinclined to explain the work I do, even to myself.  Explain too much and the thing dies.  I derive the greatest wonder not from definitions, but from maneuvering within mysteries.  As Richard Ford writes, "The world is not only stranger than we know but a lot stranger than we CAN know."  Perhaps when  I finish my last painting I will be able to look back and state exactly what I was trying to achieve the whole time.

 

But I hope not.
