I work in series of bodies of work, with one piece informing the next. A dialogue between them suggests avenues for reinvention. Referring to earlier images, I begin by identifying what I consider the essential ingredients, and then re-contextualize them into very different paintings. They have a lineage, but also branch off in divergent directions - keeping the newer work "new" while simultaneously maintaining a connective history.
