When I create a painting, I strive for perfection. However, when a mirror-like
rendition of reality is no longer the goal, perfection becomes a malleable concept. I like to
think of each painting I create as a study in color and light that results in an image that is
more sublime than the last. It is a process of trial and error: every painting is a thesis in
beauty that will inevitably be disproved by the painting that follows it.
I do like the ending of his artist statement... i sort of buy into the BS and don't mind it. i think being able to talk about your work in this way is interesting and job well done.
