Tests. Always testing. What will this do… Can this go there…
For me, painting is not about representation.
These pieces are the culmination of an archiving, collecting, finding, saving process…
Physical remnants of the city forced into new shapes, new contexts.
I am in a constant state of knowing and not knowing.
Tests. Keep testing.

“When one is young and has experienced a good deal of rejection, you want to show everyone how tough you are. Later you want to show how clever you are. Later still, you want to see how far you can push yourself. And finally, you dont give a f**k about anything, you just want to howl at the moon.” John Hoyland.
