The world studies us constantly. Light plays with us from everywhere. So does the dark. Intertwining everything.
Through painting, Iím learning how to return the worldís gaze. Itís daunting, for even the quickest glance opens and opens and opens.
What if, at the intersection of the world and our mindís eye, we werenít obliged to go one way, but could venture in all directions at once? I explore this possibility in my painting.
