Painting and building are my practice. I have devotion toward material, and I am as devoted to aerosol paints as I am to mud. All material is flesh and connotes promiscuously within society and nature. Then there is the problem of the impulse to order. As an artist I need to still stuff. Each piece acts as a halt—a submission, as a person, to the need to resist chaos. What chaos? Every artwork, every mark: a deceleration. Every one a breaking. Since, still, at the end of the day, at a turn, rupture is in the lull. This is my protest. I (am) matter too.
