In contrast to my painting over the last decade, the CONVERSING paintings are concerned with essence rather than elaboration, with contemplation rather than confrontation. Yet there is a continuing logic in their structure and references to threads that run through my history as I continue to leap about between, music, painting, drawing, sculpting, sounding and performing.
These paintings insisted on being realized despite my circumstances. I had started some drawings after a long hiatus in visual work and was also deep into a music project but they demanded my attention and would not let go until I had completed the first series. This comprised the Mars show. Two more paintings from the show are not included here.
