I attempt as much as possible to attend to the accidental in a painting, and lean on its physicality in order to bring it to a certain pitch of evocation, where it begins to assert its independent existence as an object - and hopefully something worthy of contemplation.
An overall composition hemmed in by external parameters help form an arena where sensory events can be more easily coaxed out, which leaves me a kind of parallel personal narrative in physical form. They evoke past events, seascapes, quasi-religious ponderings, physical and psychic ailments: anything that might have missed scrutiny in day-to-day living.
