When I paint I try to become detached from the world even though I can only contemplate what I know. In this seemingly contradictory process I strive to both reflect and to receive. This longing at the line is where I most want to be. When you work to bring together the two you allow the process to let the unknown enter the work. In this way I gently submit to intuition, perhaps making room for inspiration to connect with and challenge the familiar. In my experience beauty is a condition where the concrete and the ambiguous occur simultaneously and in harmony.
