I make large oil paintings. I make painting about the Earth, about why our planet is the way it is—paintings about physics and chemistry, astronomy, geology, biology, meteorology, oceanography… I make paintings about what was here before humans and what will be here after. I try to create work that is thoughtful and provocative, paintings about things that exist but cannot be seen, what is here in this cosmos that we don’t know and cannot understand. I do not make pictures for decoration. I make experiments in paint.
