Throughout all the different inspirations that you've had in your work, could you say that there is one central message that ties together all of your work?
I think I would have to say that it would be light, color, luminosity, luscious color, is what I've always seen emerging as the central message. With my paintings of men there is more of a kind of sensuality in them with a narrative that is semi-sexual. For me my earlier paintings also have this feature, but it comes out through their color and luminosity. I think there is a sensuality, a clear bright sensual light that is always present in my work.
