"In some ways my early and recent work are mirror images of each other. My older work depicted the light and space of an actual motif, with underlying suggestions of poetry. My current dreamscapes are cast deep in the rich colors of myth and poetry – the language and pictures we create to understand the world at its least understandable – but the landscapes I painted so long ago remain in my bones and blood and are at root how I organize my current painterly worlds."
