Recently I did a series of paintings that are very much different from my earlier work. This series drew from memories of emotional experiences. I really felt the need to experiment with an alternate method of expression. Rather than using the human figure to communicate an experience or feeling I used a series of objects. And invented a few machines. I really had no idea how these images would be perceived in comparison to my earlier figurative work. It felt like a risk and in the end was more exciting for me.
