"Eric Dolphy: He made extremely interesting music for five years and than died. These are both contributing factors as to why you probably don't know who he is. If you do know who he is, we should talk." 2007, Pencil on paper
In January of 2015 I noticed something looked off in the hue of a cheek I had painted in the last year. A year of corporate denials, expensive private testing and existential uncertainty later, I determined that under normal lighting conditions, the warm red I had been using for six years would visibly fade within 20 years (despite the label indicating otherwise).
Any post from 2016 on will be of painting I have either newly completed, or old ones that have been sanded down and painted in reliable, personally tested materials.
I make paintings about why people do things, as individuals, or as large groups.
That's my Religion.
