Sometimes the idea is the starting point, which guides the process, with the goal of conveying that idea through the end product. And sometimes the idea evolves from the process. I work both ways. I’ve started realizing that some of my paintings unintentionally have formal qualities that echo each other, hinting that there might be something subliminal going on. Combining familiarity with the unknown, I aim to connect with the viewer, and to provoke their curiosity, and leave them with something unresolved.
