I paint in that sort of ‘call and response’ method that a lot of abstract painters share. It’s about making an initial mark or colour and responding to it. I’m motivated by colour and the materiality of paint, so my process involves an on going dialectic between, on the one hand, my initial and intuitive bodily response to colour and texture and, on the other hand, my more logical decisions regarding form. I’m often working on several paintings at once, so the dialectic unfolds in works in isolation and across pieces. Because of this, I often find myself reworking pieces I was certain were resolved. It’s a frustrating process. In between there’s a lot of looking and reflecting.
