When a painting is good it is like poetry; you're not sure why, but the artist's world overlaps and mixes with your own. And you see something new and if you're lucky, your world expands and you feel. If the artist is lucky, you take a second look.
Point of view must be important to me, right now. My place in the world seems small, so I guess that's why these paintings are big. I often find myself up, alone, at three in the morning, wondering about this. It's then that I look to other people, like Aung San Suu Kyi, for inspiration.
I'd like to thank Pam Murray for the jump start that brought on these paintings. We met a few times, late at night, to photograph Providence.
