"My approach tends to be from experiments. I need the challenge. If I know how to do something well, there's no need to do it all the time because it becomes a little monotonous. So I like to find a challenge."
"It’s almost like I’m creating flypaper to get you over to look at the kinds of brushstrokes or the impasto layer- and it’s always interesting-looking enough to draw the viewer into it. Then once they’re there, they are confronted with material that they have to think about or just walk away from very fast."
