Catalogue Note

"At the moment, I am concerned with an image that will expand and excite the eye, even secure it. I want the painting to be sensuous, living on its own, devoid of any biography and, if vulgar, all right...This is not to say I am off the nature 'kick'; instead, through nature, this is my discovery: happiness, even joy, at finding something, which I want to look at...So, it is the eye and the paint—paint on canvas—with which I am involved, allowing the paint to have a chance and achieving a harmony between the two."
