Catalogue Note

“I have always liked de Kooning’s Women paintings. It started off with a book of his. And I just started drawing on it...after I did the books, I started to make collages. So it’d be like one of his women on the left, and one of my men on the right…it’s sort of like a trial and error where I’ll put five or six different arms and legs, just trying different rhythms out. Bring this hand down here and crossover. Put a kind of Picasso-like foot. You know, it’s just kind of a new way of dealing with the figure, this idea of the photographic part and the drawing part fused together.”
