“In this series, influenced by the shapes, colors and markings of my urban/suburban surroundings, a painting is worked until its surface reaches a certain point of finish or completeness. At this point I deliberately “unwork” it, using scrapers, sandpaper and other means of destructive editing. The results then serve as a basis for rebuilding the piece, often in a very different direction, while leaving remnants and fragments of what came before.”
