This moment in my painting represents a turning point in the vertical direction. Painting now speaks of liminal places, spatial interstices, slivers of light, points of view so narrow as infinitely expansible. They are works that impose themselves as ethereal states of suspension; shining gaps that suggest the existence of other dimensions, other times that can only be seen in a blink of an eye. The emergence of the vertical axis represents a fundamental change in the course of my career. Now I have to navigate in a space between the telluric and the celestial, the concrete and the sublime.
