“I approach painting as a vehicle to explore modern circumstances involving confabulated tales without specific conclusions. Of concern is the deificaton of objects in a culture of commodity worship. The power the trade marked object became extremely apparent to me while I was a guest Professor at Technicon Natal in South African post- Apartheid transition. Having people literally trying to buy the pants off my body over a tag, was a tiny but pointed sign of status symbols importance and frightening power.”
