"In general I think painting is what film has always tried to capture with the use of slow motion. By this I mean paintings are not frozen images taken from real time. Rather, they are evolving in time in a circular sense. I tend to strive for an extended moment which is formed from gathered circumstances and collective memory. Painting for me is an attempt to deal with life as a whole, whilst not forgetting the specifics.

I have always felt that art should tell us something about ourselves. Although we have an inadequate perspective there is an undecipherable unity in everything. As individuals we may feel and appear as fragments. This I feel is because we are unable to perceive a person, a place, or our life, as a movement within a larger movement. Ultimately, we are as concentric circles orbiting others which comprise the narrative of history."
