These paintings arise the way a city does over time -- strata upon strata, forming a crazy quilt of collisions and disjunctive adjacencies.
Inspiration comes from contemplation of incongruities that make up our world... a brick façade with a recently sealed up window of bricks of a different size and color...or Rome’s Pantheon built on top of a pagan temple.
