the inexplicable, the urgent,
the disrupting, the embarrassing,
the awful, the complex, and the
fearsome barge into my life,
whether I like it or not. I respond
with paintings that are partly cartoon,
partly lament, partly grudge, that I
hope are unpredictable, beautiful,
but sort of shaggy. Doubt can be an
advantage. I have no advance visual
strategy. I don't make drawings before
I begin and I make a lot of changes
intuitively as I go along.
I have an eye for the beauty of
ugliness, awkwardness, isolation.
Like a fatso, my paintings are
built for comfort, not for speed."
