Some people believe that paintings have meanings. Although I employ images from cartoons, animals, and objects in my work, I do not believe in creating a specific narrative.
Instead I am sensitive to the charge or implication imagery lends to the painting’s surface. My interest in using familiar and even commercial imagery is in our ability to reanimate and project our own story onto them.
