There were be outside seating for your convenience. Green Kill is equipped with a heat pump so the air is constantly refreshed and the space is, as always, sanitized.
To make a painting I must first spot something interesting or compelling from anywhere at all. This part is completely indiscriminate. There simply must be a psycho-visual tickle, and I must get that tickle on the canvas. Of course the initial tickle is typically linked with some aspect of being human which right away sets the stage for all manner of human—and whatever else—drama(s). So from that dodgy start the painting process becomes free-associative with lots of scrubbing-out, adding-on, and building-up. It’s a messy process, but all-in-all it’s a totally absorbing visual-cognitive adventure. And I push myself to advent with a double intention: pressure my cognitive envelope to get synapses freshly jumping; come up with an interesting piece.
For my political, visual, and aesthetic philosophies I draw in particular from the socio-political collages of DA DA, the paintings and drawings of R. B. Kitaj, the paintings and drawings of David Hockney, painter Stanley Spencer, sculptor Thomas Schutte and many many others.
