I am interested in a kind of space that is fresh, airy, vast and open. For a long time, I’ve felt that a painting is alive when I can feel the space in it. I would like to be able to paint air, but in order to paint air I need to paint the things in it.
I aim to locate the point where form takes on meaning—where a triangle can be read as a road in perspective, for example. Each painting suggests a model or diagram, even as it evokes a particular, fictional place.
