My tendency is to work laterally across a group of things in order to allow for things to happen that are not originally planned. To keep the process as open as possible and allow the paintings to be a record of their own making.

For me, one of the most intriguing aspects of the studio is the quest for making paintings that have an equivalence in two or more directions.The act of painting is a clash of different worlds, which in their conflict with each other create new worlds. The paintings derive from a system of metaphors drawn from physical science. A kind of blank slate or neutralizing structure which allows me to describe what I think I know about existing in time and space, history and nature - and do it without any words or recognizable images.
