“I start each work by placing a random combination of paint into a dispensing gun. I then distribute the blended pixels of colour across the painting surface until the field is covered. The painting is then finished. There is no editing; I only get one chance. This constraint is very liberating. I know that the latent potential of the paint in the gun could describe near infinite worlds but ultimately a single image will emerge. I no longer have to consider when a painting is finished. This process has changed very little. What has is the way that I consider the slowly evolving trail of paint and the ways that it might equate to the visual world.”
