painting is like chasing a butterfly without a net.

i think about painting a lot. the act of painting for me is as elusive, or perhaps more elusive that trying to formulate the presence of space through architecture; another absence made presence through action. both are ambitious rushes, with blood and guts and the promise of getting oneself lost.

i try to reduce the space between me and the surface until it stands facing me with its own lungs, body and legs. if and when we get there, i can breathe.
