Visual images that come forth in the “making” process, that I have never seen, but which speak clearly to me, are what drive me. I’m also drawn to the raw nature of paint and the way it looks and “feels” when it’s squeegeed, smeared, finger-painted, brushed, squirted, thrown, splashed, dripped, etc. Some of the impetus for the work comes from the writings of the beat poets and writers (Kerouac, Ginsberg, Ferlingetti), but I’ve also been influenced by the abstract expressionists, jazz musicians, the automatic writings of Masson and early Henry Miller (“Black Spring”), outsider artists, and current painters like
Albert Oehlen, Christopher Wool, and Julien Schnabel. But, in the end, it’s just me trying to paint “some” truth that I’m unaware of.
