My goal in painting is to create an experience as opposed to a composition. I treasure an infinite space and would like the paintings to function more like a drink or a drug or what your favorite song does to you.
The phenomena of how light moves I witnessed on a particular night jet boat ride a few years ago. There seemed to be no horizon line; the sky and water were nearly one, a dark almost black. When the boat took off the city lights gyrated manically. This was no landscape but an unforgettable experience I translated into paint.
