For me painting is primarily about the use of paint, the textures, the colors, the changes that take place with each addition or deletion of an area, it is a constant and sometimes depressing chaos, trying to get it “right” and not knowing ahead of time what “right” is. It is trying to use a language I cannot use words for, but must learn by doing until I feel it is getting to the language of the painting. I love the paint itself for what it offers as a territory to explore by using colors and forms and taking for granted that it is always going to be an examination perhaps with some success but more likely pointing me in the direction of further exploration and work.
