I’ve been doing a lot of pondering lately. More thinking than doing. Sometimes I have emotional dips, or a period of self doubt that stops me from making work, but this is different. I’m not painting, I’m thinking – mulling. It’s not a block as such, but a period of reflection and an attempt to position myself within the context of contemporary painting.
The paintings that I produce are not like many other painters’ work. I know this. This period of reflection is a conscious evaluation of what makes me ME and to somehow embrace that uniqueness as a celebration of those differences that separates me from other painters.
