    The woods are stiff like the figures. They fracture the sunlight into diamonds and triangles, which are shapes that can be found throughout my work, whether in the form of bullet lines or beams of light in the rock concerts. The pictures of the woods are about getting away from the sun, away from the eye of the sun. The sun is an oppressive element throughout my work, it gives light, which allows vision but in real life you can’t look at it. The woods offer shelter from the light–which is vision–but they are about death, which is about loss of vision.
    B. Furnas from R. Schumacher “The Painting as a Place Where Two Narratives Coexist,” Imagination Becomes Reality, Munich, 2006, p. 72
