I paint a representation of each album cover while listening to the album. Sometimes the painting is done first, sometimes the album is done first, but when the album is done the painting is done, that’s the rule. The resulting paintings are painterly and expressive; thick impasto stabs of tactility and impression left as emotional responses to music and memory. The resulting catalogue unfolds like the snapshots of a photo album, emotional keepsakes that instantly transport us to a specific time and place, not unlike a song, an album, or that album’s cover.
