"When the wind was in the north you could hear them, the horses and the breath of the horses and the horses' hooves...as they rode, nation and ghost of nation passing in soft chorale across the mineral waste to darkness bearing lost to all history and all remembrance like a grail..."
– Cormac McCarthy, All the Pretty Horses
“Painting is a peculiar miracle that I need to have again and again. I do not literally paint the horse, but the emotion it produces upon me. I focus on movement, texture and light. My goal is to recapture the mysterious by discovering the internal and external world anew. My renderings focus on emotive effect, rather than manifesting a sense of true physical space. I look at a horse and I see shape, color and tone. Then I find those that will make the work alive and vibrate. I have neither rules nor method. I look to art for a direct experience. I revel in the drag, the smear, the splash and flow of liquid color, in the physicality of the strokes. The shapes and hues assert themselves and interact with one another, as if in conversation. What I am seeking is not the real and not the unreal but rather the unconscious and the instinctive. I start a picture and I finish it. I don’t think about art while I work. I think about life.”
