“My imagery is drawn from imagination, from direct experience, from mass media and from art history to question what constitutes authentic experience. In a world overflowing with images nothing and everything is a worthwhile subject; nothing and everything is an unmediated, direct, and personal experience. By the time I come to finishing a painting, especially the blow-ups, I have to an extent created the illusion that I am working with a ready-made. For a work to be successful I have to have somehow disowned its aesthetic decisions by the time it is complete. I love finding some odd, mysterious, unknowing painting in a junk shop by some unknown artist/craftsman: I can enjoy it for what it is in all its glory and all its failure – that situation is how I want to experience my own work.”
