    About the artist

    New Yorker. Currently living in Dublin.

    Paint on flat surfaces, mostly. Some varieties of abstraction,
    photographs, found and/or stolen objects, things I can’t be rid of
    in any other way, things I refuse to surrender, etc.

    Acrylic, oil, pencil, ink, pastel, crayon, plaster, spit, etc., digital images (whatever I can make a Mac do), pretty much anything lying about the studio – or, if discovered elsewhere, looks interesting and isn’t nailed down (or can be easily pried off) – plus accidents, neglect, theft, confusion, despair, etc. Long, uncomfortable pauses.

    “There is only one way left to escape the alienation of present day
    society: to retreat ahead of it.”

    – Roland Barthes, The Pleasure of the Text
