Sample text

I use it more for just cleaning off. If the palette gets too mucky, I can just scrape it down. 48 inside the painter’s studio So these are the only colors you use? Yeah, there’s white, a really cold red, yellow, orange, blue, and sometimes a little green. That’s it. For all your paintings? Yeah, for all the paintings. Somehow it just makes the most sense to me. I can’t believe you get all those colors with just those colors. I try to think of it sort of like a photograph and just work with complementary colors, and I don’t use any black.

The image that it created had an organic-chemistry feeling to it, like an image could be created like a cell is created—constant growth and sets of mutations—so that’s when I started what I considered “documentary” painting. Paintings that were realistic in the sense that they really did look like cells and molecules, and not only did they look like them, but they were made like cells and molecules.
