ARTIST STATEMENT: Like thunderstorms and subway schedules, thereâ€™s not much I can do to control the way a half-gallon of wet paint falls onto a canvas. I can push and pull at it, but gravity is doing most of the work. What I do control, rather, are the conditions in which this process occurs: the paintâ€™s color, its texture, the proportion and size of the canvas it falls on. There are thousands of paintings that could happen, but only one that ever does. By creating a context, the content creates itself. Do we control that? Maybe.
