"Often when you're in the process of realizing an image, it's going somewhere else. If that tangent starts going off in a place that feels more exciting, that's what I go with."
"The last two bodies of work and the body I’m working on now really do address more directly the construction of a personal life and what that entails- what actually occupies it and what, literally, it looks like. That’s what precipitated the titling of the last paintings in terms of rooms of the house- ‘The Dining Room’, ‘The Living Room’, ‘In the Garden’.The titles of these paintings indicate on a political level the importance of residential space that is different from public space in terms of aesthetics and safety."
