"Painting, for me, is the evidence of an inquiry. It is the static object by which we measure our changes. It is the postulation made physical. It is the repository for particular configurations. It is the wall that penetrates. It is the reciprocal vertical plane. It is the body realigned. It is the mind reminded. It is the hunch made vivid. It is the reworkings of the familiar. It is the shadow of the unfamiliar. It is the acting out of desire. It is the probe of limits. It is the life imagined. It is the eye engaged. Painting is luxury bounded."
