The act of painting encompasses all of human expression. This is its inherent desire, which exists in the magnetism between an image and object. Painting is a synthesis of the imagination and reality, the unknowable and the known; it is a dynamic interrelationship of content and form, which provide a basis for its syntax and comprehension. The language of painting is internal, and replaces the verbal articulation of ideas, yet simultaneously it is about the concrete materiality of the object directly in front of us. Paintings operate in the interchangeable region between thinking (idea) and image (object).
