I am trying to make things that are incoherent present, visual. I end up chasing the lines I start with; I work in series, usually 3-5 pieces at the same time so the energy can flow between pieces. Immediacy is important. Working on paper with paint and oil stick is a key to this, as there is no turning back, no erasing or rubbing out; you’re committed to the image you’re starting or you have to rip it up and start again. Loving the act of making these often shows on the work – particularly in the very spare pieces on just lines and marks.
