•In painting, I am interested in the body’s immobility. But I look to a bodily stasis whose cause is rooted in reverie or fascination.
•The whole body apparently turns toward the place of fascination, or what I call the longed-for object, and then remains there, transfixed and longing.
The perceived vastness justifies the longing but never explicates it, and so longing continues.
I am human, and I want something palpable, and I want to make images, so first I image the body’s stillness.
Secondly I imagine what is seen. A sort of explosion. A clearing space. A never ending area. Maybe the place at the top of a great height. That which should not go together goes together.
My paintings move alongside these experiences.
