“My larger paintings are very action oriented. I'm walking from one side of the room to the other to draw a line. There's a sense of time involved with the process of making and the experience for the viewer. I'm fascinated by where your eye is going to travel on the painting and where it may stop. Chances are, it was very similar to the process in the studio.”
