I find the ordinary exotic. I look at a crowd in an illuminated bus shelter at night and think it’s as stirring and mysterious as anything imaginable. Painting the familiar world around me allows me to discover my connection to things, and also to explore their connections to one another. Light then serves to set the stage and the tone for these relationships which become like little dramas unfolding before me as I paint. I love how the world of tangible, separate things can be bound together in a fabric of light. And whatever story I have to tell, I am most compelled by how the subject dissolves into the light and space.
