Updates from my studio, got’er all painted a-fresh, new lights and just been painting a lot. Much has been made by me about my frustrations with painting, although what I think I’ve come to realize is that my frustrations with painting were mostly just frustrations about art in general; I mean how difficult is it to come up with an image/object that is legitimately interesting, powerful, and unique in history these days? I’m trying not to worry too much about this stuff and just do my best to make images that I like and dwell upon the stuff that I’m interested in. All works are in progress. Process-wise I like the idea that I can take anything and warp-it/morph-it into something powerful, so I usually start on impulses and ride the piece out until it feels done, although at the same time always looking for the quick solution.
