The studio is a filter, a space in which experience is considered, and through a material process, transformed into art. I work in series, and each series is a response to a particular set of circumstances in my life and in the culture around me. I begin by collecting images; sometimes these are photographs I take, but more often they are already circulating in various print and digital media. Once a collection reaches a certain density I start to edit, crop, and combine. I decide on an appropriate scale, and then translate the imagery into paint on canvas, with all the attendant decisions about color and brushmark, representational style and painterly approach.
