"I continuously saw spray paint being used to mark territory by gangs in the streets of Los Angeles… drug warfare played out in aesthetics, a power struggle of tagging that almost always became atmospheric and abstract due to the intense back and forth of rival gang members. The desire to make paintings was an absolute reaction to seeing graffiti and territorial disputes writ large in the streets, almost as if a case study. I found it almost impossible to ignore my generation’s continued struggle to find ways to make a meaningful painting. I like to think that I have found a way to make spray paint abstract."
