 I would like for my work to reflect a kind of longing and escapism. There’s quite a bit of drawing in my paintings and within that line is a certain flamboyance. It’s buried in placid, flat pastels, but it’s there. There’s a softness and calculated saturation of color in Technicolor and French New Wave cinema that informs a great deal of my work. I like for there to be activity on the edges of forms, which is very common in offset printing/lithography. It’s my hope that painting continues to be as challenging as it is for me right now. I’ve never loved, and wrestled with, painting more.
