As much as cadmium runs in my veins, and as much as I talk about painting, I reject it as my primary medium.
I do not call myself a painter.
I do not believe in being a single disciplined artist.
It doesn’t offer me everything I need when I think about making.
It’s like saying I’m a chef, but I will only cook with tomatoes. You can do an awful lot with tomatoes, but not enough.
I believe in creating in a coincidental way, staying alert for potential, and reflecting or editing after making.

Waiting and slow, slow learning how to be alone, and edit, and analyze. Practicing the art of keeping myself grounded and objective, when outside of the making process. It will be the same as when I am here in my Cherry Street studio. The solitude will echo for longer periods of time, but it won’t last forever.
We are never truly on our own. We aren’t like sea creature which are born and immediately subjected to life or death by virtue of luck or being in the right or wrong place at the right or wrong time. Then again...maybe we [artists] are subject to that level of natural selection?
