When I paint I often think about beauty, truth, time, and experience. I would say I am a painter that is concerned with traditional aspects of painting: composition, color, gesture, balance, resolution. Logic also plays a significant role in my work. I think good paintings and good painters have developed a logic to their work which is intuitive and universal. I try to apply a visual and thematic logic to my paintings. I use text for lots of different reasons: sometimes it's form, sometimes it's an idea, sometimes it just feels right for the painting or I just have something on my mind. I feel very lucky to be a painter as I have the luxury to think about things that many people don’t have the time to think about. The question I constantly find I'm asking myself is "What does it mean to make a painting?" whether I am starting a new work or looking at other people's work.
