The persistent demonstrationred painterly know how and investigation.
Making a virtue of (once derided) skittishness affords a physical and temporal layering that corresponds directly with the paintings prophesized future contexts. The in-built anticipation of the works equal debt to its surroundings shifts the emphasis from finished object to contagious ongoing exploration. Each work is a lit fuse with no (or multiple) climax that consistently occupies the crest of an unfolding and endless renewal.
