visibile upon the invisible

I prefer process over accuracy.

I prefer to let the painting evolve through risk, through effort, through play, through frustration, through sensation, through recollections and a reconciling of opposites.

I prefer my painting to be a record of the internal instead of the external, not to imitate a fixed surface reality, but render a spirit and movement.

I prefer to always seek creative knowledge that is transformative and universal through the process of art making.
