From the very first, my painting has always been about connections. It is connections that lead to inevitable outcomes in my work and finally to a sense of ‘thereness’ that I am hoping to create.
But today is about ‘hereness’ – for the first time I want to express what the act of making art means to me. I’d like also to put into words my response to the art of others and with a little luck get a conversation going about what art is and isn’t and what artists throughout the ages have given us.
I suspect that working with words will be a lot like painting in one respect – no matter what I see and want to do, when I finally get there in painting I actually wind up with something different.
So, welcome. Let’s talk.
