CHASING THE RABBIT
The title refers to the ideal of image as something that we pursue.
We are, all of us, interested in stories, and we are interested in how things look.
My favorite visual situations are mostly from television. Also, I am interested in images that I perceive as Japanese, specifically Japanese packaging and its influence on American marketing, as I experience it.
The phrase Chasing the Rabbit is maybe some kind of linguistic Rorschach test suggesting many possibilities; for instance: Future, Alice (drugs), but especially Revolution.
I think of these paintings as abstracted TV images, frame by frame. There is no one-to-one correspondence with any particular image. It is more that the paintings are associated with this ideal image space, although the exact nature of this association remains unclear.
