My voice is in sound, oil painting, and drawing, in slow repetitions.
An example: the vinyl record or tall formation of jeans-clad butt-and-legs seen from the back came up in my drawings in 2009 and I modified and shifted them over the course of five years until their shell, the language holding them together, broke. The vinyl became a puddle and then only shape. I stripped the butt and legs from any gaze. Repetition means to detoxify a thing's (word, image, sound, gesture) surroundings and to accept the thing's temporary truth. Then I can talk.
