You speak the language of not speaking falsely. How? By going as far into your art as you can. There is no answer to the question, ‘how far can you go?’
What results is not a reflection of real life – but a vision, a Lo! and Behold! of possible life – lives that may be ahead of us, to realise or lose, lives that may already be behind us, deprived of oblivion only because of this art.
– Greil Marcus
To go further into my art, I constantly move between realism, formal abstraction, and the extraordinarily rich and varied possibilities involved in the manipulation of oil paint.
