  •  "I paint in layers and very gesturally at times. I want the viewer to witness the process within the work, which explains why certain areas are left untouched. If one moves close to the surface the painting becomes abstract it is only once you step back that you can read the image and its entirety. I usually select one area that will receive more detailed attention echoing the mechanism of a camera lens. As details become interesting to notice when other moments in an image are left blurry, the depth of field theory I suppose." —Jerome Lagarrigue
