Statement

A story is something I discover rather than diagram. The process of loading a brush with paint or picking up a marking tool is a physical act that is connected to, but separate from, visualizing things in my head. I need to submit to the physical act, “go with the flow,” in order to let head and hand best collaborate. They do work together, but trying to make my hand subservient to images in my head is not effective. There are a thousand themes and stories I want to visualize, but I won’t get the desired fluid, unexpected results by seeking predetermination. I may start out wanting to make one thing only to have it’s execution take a nose-dive. Yet the process usually reveals something else, unforeseen, that is less contrived than what I wanted. To me, non-linearity has a greater connect to reality.
