A layer of paint. What role does this play in your idea of painting? In your process or in your understanding of a painting as a record of time?
Layers in a painting imply linear chronology, starting at the bottom building up. I'm trying acknowledge that logic and counter it with marks that don't comply.
What's at stake for you in the way you choose to picture the idea of "crisis"?
Freezing a moment of tension in order to examine it from different angles, inside and outside.
Why do you partition the space in your paintings?
The division is a way to bring the edge into the frame and make a space beyond.
