“When I came to New York City I knew nothing. Nothing about being an artist, nothing about selling or exhibiting, really nothing. This isn't unusual because I believe a lot of people come here thinking one thing and finding something else entirely.”
“I began developing my own contemporary mythologies, continuing to paint scenes that told a story about the characters and personal relationships in my everyday life but also referring to the painting traditions.'“
“When I look back at my work from past few years, I would say, that it was nearly a natural consequence, regarding the vocabulary I use, to focus on the simple things – the common things.”
“I do control the process and I know how they will all interact but there is also some part of the process that is then open, left to chance so to say. As if there is something unresolved.”
"But the drawings extrapolate that far out beyond logic or proportion. They become distorted and strange and humour creeps in too."
