I rely on action and speed of hand to cut out conscious thought, the ego, to get to something more primal. 
They’re portraits in a sense because they’re a physical result, or really a re-playing after the fact, of interactions,
both real and imagined.  I suppose there’s an effort to render an emotional flash that both points at something,
but was that really anything? or is this the residue of agesture of the present re-telling, re-remembering, re-asserting
of acts that go uncounted in the dense passing by of our day, week, month, year. The paintings jump between
assumptions of clarity, anticipations of anonymous comfort, and highly charged confusion - parked in the concrete
instant of a brain scan.
