"For a couple of years I’ve been working with cutting out shapes and kind of glomming them together and letting it go where it may, like basically making a zigzag shape and making a rectangular shape and a circular, bloopy, fat, cloudy shape and just putting them all together and letting the cards fall where they may. I don’t know why I’m doing it this way because what I want more than anything else in my life and in my painting is for things to unify, to come together."
