I make large projects consisting of multiple small still life images. It is a consuming process of deep focus. Using strategies of iteration, variation and accumulation, I fill time with an activity that, in itself, is meant to reveal what it is to experience time passing; the consciousness of time is internalized in the art act and in the art work. Each project is interrupted only by a factor that dictates an arbitrary pause — a deadline, an exhibition, a vacation — until I can take it up again. In this way the work develops anachronically (resisting fixed time), and recursively (developing serially and systematically). For exhibitions, the collective paintings comprise a single work, and are installed together in one space as a hesitation in an ongoing process.
