“I see in the human face a whole terrain of possibility. A live sitter’s energy would be too much, and so I work from photographs. Whether the photo is of someone I know or a celebrity or even someone no longer on the planet, it is always the same: a dialogue begins, slow, silent until bit by bit a picture emerges, almost as if a channel opens and the person steps forward, allowing me to see some part of them that is real and true. In that way, hopefully, the painting becomes revelation. A lot happens by accident. As I draw the face I begin to see possibilities, but it is really the paint itself and the feelings I get from the photo, the image, that tell me how to proceed.”
