My interests lie in choosing things that are out there in the world and, after a period of exploration and gestation, presenting them in a new way, one that reflects my interest in them as objects. So the quiddity of the painting is important, as opposed to a concept it represents. All of my works are composed before they are painted, most coming directly from study collages made using imagery appropriated from print sources: art books, fashion and culture magazines, newspapers, and ephemera like ticket stubs or advertising mailers.
