“My intention in creating art is irrelevant.  I like to believe that art exists in a state of ‘without why’ and ‘just because’.  Not in the sense that the art speaks for itself as this suggests that the art has to fit into the conceptual space of language.  And not in the sense of art for art’s sake as this alternatively suggests that art exists outside the unity of living experience. Art needs no language; it is tacit. Call it unvoiced; or better, pre-voice.  However, having said that, in developing art, I must begin at some reference point of experience.  I begin with specific space, form, light and shadow in which these elements are evocative and, again, without voice, without a why.  I follow this initial reference point, a place, a room, in a certain mood following an aesthetic path rather than a thinking one.  My guides along the way are color harmony, composition and light and shadow.   The residual narrative is a trace of the original reference point.”
