My work is driven by the metaphysical quality of seeing "the apparition" versus "the appearance".
For centuries painters have worked on a surface - only to reveal that which lays behind that surface. The tool of revealing is a refined process of creation and destruction, communicating questions and answers through the vocabulary of painting. Grinding my own pigment with oil allows me to preserve the heterogeneity of the pigment. It reflects light in a fuller way than tube paint.
