Mainly I am just laughing at myself with the assistance of doppelgängers, animal avatars, horizon lines, mathematical shapes and vectors (where I freakishly believe I glimpse power sources), and the chaotic use of paint to screw up the controlled use of paint — while contemplating space and time, objective vs. subjective, idiot/savant, above/below, inside/outside (dualities of all kinds), how to turn a circle inside out… and similar conceptual black holes, such as actual black holes.

I play with my words before I eat them, because words and music (I play) are often the inspiration for my artwork. Lightening calls for ground and butter-cream frosting calls for a worthy cake. I have never made a perfect cake in my life… but, some people will happily eat frosting for breakfast. When I get what’s under my frosting right I almost feel able to justify not having kids to my parents.
