To allow something that I do not control to have an action, to allow oneself to bring this action into a materiality; this is why I make art.
My work is very much about process. I find the image secondary to the art making. Although abstract in nature, there is an underlying visual order that gradually seems to emerge. Working intuitively, I enter a realm of the unknown where there is more of a following than any real choice. I seem to be forever altering and adjusting the framework of some invisible reality.
There is an openness that is needed for this direct experience, this self-imposed repetitive process as I build, destroy, erase, paint over. There is a definite chaos through which each work evolves and it seems to return repeatedly to its beginning. But with each revival there are the markings, the scars of the previous. I have a relationship to these subtleties, these sensitivities, keeping some, hiding some; but knowing full well all that has been before.
