I made this painting while listening to the music of John Luther Adams, in particular, his work of the same title. I remember feeling a sense of true content with everything that was happening to me in my life. There’s something about the simple design of this painting which mimics all the right ingredients for finding peace and calm: simplicity, a beautiful balance between different elements, some supporting cast which are comforting, and something to chase, a true north star which brings everything together (i.e. the red circle and the red curling line which cut through the entire work and bring the whole thing together). The minimal use of color is also important for making the more vibrant parts of the painting even more radiant. It’s this beautiful balance between the workhorse and the twinkling lights that give me hope for creating a an effortless sense of harmony, an instinctual display of lines and circles.

'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.
