This work is all about simplicity and the relationship between each mark on the page. The black spray-painted circle in the top left, the black squiggly lines in the top right, the three main shapes in the center of the work, and so on, all of these things can be the focus, the center. I’ve always wanted to create works where you could focus on so many different things and yet, at the same time, you always still feel the pulse of the other objects. So, if you’re looking at one part of the painting, you can enjoy it, but, however, you also feel the presence of the other parts of the painting pulling you in their direction. What gives this painting life is the vibrant red spray paint circle and red, line curling up towards the center of the work. It’s the ingredient of the work which makes the whole thing come together. Similar to the color of blood, it’s like the life blood pumping through the entire work, capturing your attention, but at the same time allowing you to wander across the page to focus on other parts of the body.

'My religion is to trust myself'. My process involves creating art quickly to produce works which represent a particular moment in time. Years of study and experimentation have made significant contributions to my work. But simply trusting my instincts has encouraged more interesting results and has allowed me to avoid difficulties related to paralysis by analysis. There is often an appropriate amount of breathing between various aspects, layers or gestures within each work. But those breaths are also within the same period of time and space, so each new element still feels and looks like it emanated from materials which came before it.
