  • Catalogue Essay

    The structure, the architecture, the information and the visual signage that goes into my work changes in the context of what’s going on in the world and impacing me. Then there’s this other subconscious kind of drawing this other activity that takes place, that is interacting with everything that is changing, and it’s the relationship between the two that really pushes me. And why abstraction? There are so many other ways to make paintings about these conditions that I’m drawn to. But there’s something that’s hard to speak about that abstraction gives me access to.
