"Making the art is the art and what ends up on a board or canvas is an artifact that has been left behind for the rest of us to observe and wonder"
From the beginning I have known what I call the flow. As a kid I thought that being in the flow was what everybody did. I would spend an entire day throwing sticks in a river and throwing rocks at them as they floated past.
My best work comes when my conscious thoughts take a back seat to the,”in the moment feel of the flow”. Have you ever been driving a vehicle and after arriving at your destination you cannot remember how you got there? If so, you were in the flow. It is a timeless and fantastically quiet state of mind.
When I paint, there is a high, a bit like the high of falling in love.
My best work arises when I am there. Sometimes the flow evades me and if I try to think my way through a painting I usually end up with a big mess.
I have discovered that countless images lurk inside me. When I close my eyes, they will present themselves in full colour coming and going like hobos riding the rails.
I have but seconds to take in each image before the next comes, and they keep coming until I tire and fall asleep.
Those images are not political; they have no social, commercial or philosophical implications.
They are simply an awesome display of colour and design that never fail to entertain me.
I wonder if a 3D printer can be linked to my mind when those images are on parade?
