Brian Edmonds recently interviewed me for the e-journal, Figure/Ground.
"Most of the colors I use come straight from the tube or jar. I do occasionally mix a color if I need something specific. But in any mixing a certain amount of purity is lost. When I use colors I’m looking for a striking clash that makes my compositions seem anxious, and my forms antagonistic to one another. I don’t enjoy mixing color, taking notes or acting as a scientist in the studio. I’m for paint, the act of painting and directness."
