“I do not try to be profound. My only concern is to make pictures that work - I can’t worry about critical relevance, or what a viewer might discover in a piece. Such are not for me to know. I am a figurative painter who is, nevertheless, more focused on formal issues than narrative content. Narratives are egocentric, and I am an artist of the Id. Textures, color, and line are the Id. I establish a dialog with each canvas, and let it develop on its own terms - so my pictures are very simple and direct. The anatomy of the picture is always more important than the anatomy of the subject.”
