“When starting a painting, I try to be crazy and paint with whatever feels good at the moment: old acrylic test paint, rollers, squeegees, stir sticks, wire mesh, oil sticks, and lots of smearing and dripping. It is pure madness and lots of fun. After a time, the painting has to calm down, be edited, have a composition and hopefully a dominant color. My paintings are all about the tension between madness and calm, my striving to keep the energy, chaos and color while imposing an order and coherence.”
