My latest work is drawn from an ongoing investigation of the world around me, which I engage through filmmaking and photography. I use this collected material to provide reference points for my paintings, or to make a film or a print. I find myself drawn to imagery such as advertisements, found love letters, or a car full of romance novels being towed from Texas to Los Angeles. Through enlargement and cropping, I reveal or conceal information present in the original source. Painting is often the best way to describe something I have seen.
