In my experience, the paintings I make that remain viable among the many that are thrown away, have not been violated by an idea or concept in which would contort their path to the mark. The "mark" being a place that knows more about oneself than one knows in this pursuit, stemming, from what I imagine as a lapse of concern for a particular result. Hopefully, there is a willingness to sacrifice every well-wrought detail for the sake of the whole. The colors must talk to each other endlessly and each work become a stand-in for the world and, of course, there is no hope for any of this, and so we begin.
