At present, painting for me is like returning home. I painted for many years, then for a decade my practice became more conceptual—creating collections of contemporary material culture. I returned to painting in 2006 with a renewed interest, fueled by Conceptualism and informed by postmodern attitudes. The new paintings claim object status, enabling them to tap into the 3-D polychrome universe; product and package design, nature, architecture, popular culture, custom cars, and fashion. I am now making my own ideal collection. Inclusions to this set of objects are carefully controlled.
