From Tether 3, page 42
Each spring I go out hunting. I search for striking images of color, light and shadow, volume and shape. I find them in the surfaces of agricultural equipment, their plastic and metal planes, their bolts and pipes, protuberances and openings. For many years my motifs for paintings came from the fields and barnyards of farms, with my vision narrowing over time: from broad sweeps of working landscape to machinery foregrounded within it, to my current intimate, more abstracted compositions.
