of a life residue of a dream: NOTES on my work.
the dual identity of a painting: one of presentation, its physical presence
in space; and one of re-presentation, allowing the viewer to animate
what (s)he sees: an actual existence and a depicted one<>brushstrokes
eliminated to conceal their machinery; a "believable" space
to access and explore<>an initially seductive style has the power
to, through slight subversion and distortion, draw attention to itself
as a beautiful, bizarre entity which dances in and out of its place
in the world and its place in the viewers memory and imagination<>the
reverse phenomenon of reality becoming sensation, and sensation in turn
transforming back into reality until the distiction becomes blurred.
curiosity and imagination in pictorial terms<>a self portrait
transformed into a universal mood; a carnivorous plant picked from the
garden of hieronymous bosch<>an attempt to extract an object from
the totality of memory and experience, yet present it in a way that
leads one back to that experience<>to comment on this culture
of collecting and documention as an attempt to protect something from
being forgotton and left behind by time.
