2000-2016 Objects / Views / Songs

Mainly working from objects - painter’s mannequin, Pupo from Sicily, decorative drapes, flowers (usually dead), basketball boots. All in somewhat arbitrary arrangements often accumulated on paint spattered studio floorboards.

Occasional views through window and stuff on tables too. Friends sometimes pose. Obsessed with south facing studio and light.

Working on new album of songs, all recorded in painting studio.

Working from direct observation. Smaller brushes. Wanting a hidden narrative or set of relationships within paintings, but not sure to what degree I can construct it. Maybe with figures and Puppet type characters. Whatever or how you paint, paint is with love!
