“It was always about making a painting. When you take a simple thing like a platter, and you change the scale of it, you’ve made a whole other animal. That’s the exciting part.” “I’m always trying to expand the parameters of painting. So when I made these outrageous things the parameter extended. And then, the next painting, I could do that, and I could do more. And if I wanted to bring tight pattern through it, I could use it as a ground, but once I got to this real, incredible sense of ornamentation… that’s what they’re about.”
