"Last year it just seemed like everyone I knew died . . . my mother, Al Held (my former teacher), good friends. And I just wanted my 2006 show to be emotional. So I was basing this work on images of darkness and a kind of wilder characteristic than my other stuff. Before, the work was still chaotic but the last show was so pretty. And I thought, "This is not pretty, this is going to go to the other side." I was even looking at images in Dante’s 'Inferno'. So it was going to be a lot of dramatic, dark imagery."
