The mode of discipline that I work with involves a substantial collaboration with chance which relies upon an alertness to unintended consequences. The sudden appearance of unforseen possibilities, in the meantime, requires a constitutional capacity to function within a certain degree of chaos. If I approach a canvas with what might appear a nonchalant anything goes disposition, it is with the same humility one brings to contemplating visual experience in the natural world. The requisite inner gesture is a sort of stepping out of the way in order to let something happen. There is the intuitive, dreamy quality of an otherworldly realm and, at the same time--here and nowness. Nature is the over riding motivation for my ART.
