I am influenced by what I see around my studio in Brooklyn, sensory memories, and by art both old and new. I have recently been thinking about the palpable luminosity of a Cypriot sarcophagus and some of the Egyptian and Greek stele at the Metropolitan museum. I admire the power and clarity of these monuments and how they address our bodies.


I use color to alert the senses, create the “sound” of the paintings, and give life and breath to the forms. It is both structural and qualifying. I think of the surface as being both filled and emptied by the paint.
