    About the artist

    New Yorker. Currently living in Dublin.

    Paint on flat surfaces, mostly. Some varieties of abstraction,
    art concret (where everything began for me, years ago),
    photographs, found objects, 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., plus digital graphics (whatever I can make a Mac do) – i.e., 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.

    New materials constantly being discovered.

    “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
