When I sit down to paint or draw, I prefer to be in a state of open-eyed meditation. This way, I don’t have to “do” anything; the images just “happen.” There is no external object to be reproduced. There is no internal object either. Everything comes from within in that moment.
A number of themes recur in my work, which I would describe as follows. The world in which we live is not only concrete but subtle in nature. As subtle beings, our substance is energy, which exists in continual motion. As spiritual beings, we inhabit an ecstatic world that transcends pleasure and pain, while yet encompassing both those polarities.
