What is the meaning of doing art for you?
"I think I'm driven to work partly by curiosity, partly
by daring, partly by insecurity. Curiosity because
I never know what to expect, daring because failure
is part of the equation, and insecurity because I need
to prove to myself over and over again I can actually
make a successful painting.
I suppose I'm also something of a
masochist because art is not easy.
It's like doing hill-work as a runner,
except the hill-work of art lasts all
day, day after day. Like running, though,
art is just; meaning you generally get
back what you put in. I have a love-hate
relationship with the process because
it's so damn challenging and live
largely for the results. But I would
have it no other way.
I believe destiny is the path one
takes to identity. For me that path
has been art."
