"There is no story without elements in tension. Transparent and opaque, smooth and textured— each aspect amplifies the qualities of the other. The painting is always a palimpsest, a document of layers that build on one another. As a creative writer, I am interested in the overlap of story and image, the ways in which specific marks invoke a pre-linguistic syntax. Stains on raw canvas as adjectives, hard-lined shapes as concrete nouns. What seems most solid is a mere reaction to what lies beneath it."
