“You look at a painting leaning against the wall. You find it beautiful and there is nothing else in the world like it. So then it must have come into its own. But there was a moment in 2008, I had run out of a color and needed to run out to the art supply store. I was going to change out of my clothes that were covered in paint and someone said, “You don’t have to change, you’re a painter.” And I thought, “Yeah, I am comfortable with this.”.
Q:” The Cavin Morris gallery described your paintings as “synesthetic.”
A: “You know I don’t really know what that means in terms of art. I thought it was like when you touch someone’s foot and they feel a tingling in the back of the neck kind of thing.”
