“My work is concerned with how to bridge the huge gap represented by drawing and painting. I associate drawing with the internalized activities of making art and looking inward; painting represents the final presentation of these thoughts and interests. Drawings are sketches that in traditional art are hidden most of the time; painting is art’s public face. For me, both have a great deal to do with memory; both enable me to show the inner and the outer aspects of my memories.”
