Above: part of Stop drop kaboom.

The contemporary world seems like such an odd place to me. I needed a protagonist to show that. I love the metaphor of using the astronaut for the exploration. He’s looking at all the strange things we have going around us, everything from a Damien Hirst installation in a subway to a Nike billboard. Each painting I finish I think of as a little addition to the story of the astronaut. As long as there are places for him to go and people for him to see, I’ll keep going.
