Expressive and gestural are the works that I create,
Formed with a lofty vision and a careful hand
Color and value seek each other as lost lovers
Texture is their favorite child.
What the hell am I writing about?
The purpose is the experience, not the product
What do they want from me?
I can't be the perfect artist I'm supposed to be!
I put my hands into images. I stir them up.
I am not unique. Everything has been done before.
What is the point of doing it all over again?
What are my influences? Can I make them my own?
Art History: Da Vinci is a lot like me. Absolutely brilliant
couldn't get his ass together and do the work.
I've always admired the Renaissance artists, but
so has everybody else. I'm a cookie-cutter artist.
What good is an artist who is a carbon copy of every
other idiot to walk the earth?
I am the antithesis of an artist.

in my mind’s eye i can see her, limping dreadfully close to the edge of the current, her left hand gripping at her breasts through a loose t-shirt. kneeling by the wastelands, elbows in the gravel, crawling forward out into the water. angry like a dermis under wool, all teeth and salt and sand. sleepy, submissive, sublimated.
