I think I’ve always been dark, I mean, it’s not really dark, I mean, you know, the darkness makes the light bright or
whatever, you know, but I think that, you know, just can’t resist it if it’s… you know what, the first idea really came from just wanting to see what they look like. You know it’s like once I looked at all the bugs together and you just, you know, you just sort of automatically assume that bugs are kind of gray and brown and black and you just, you know, you don’t think of them as having the brightness that butterflies have got. But them once they start to look at them it’s like, you know, I mean, a lot of people come in when we’re making them and say, you know, are they real? Beetles that look hand-painted, blues and turquoise, you know, they’re even more bright than than butterflies. And there’s, you know, as well I like the fact that they’re paintings but they’re sculptures really, you know, they’re like three-dimensional. You know, and it’s sort of, I don’t know, I seem to be kind of doing more with it, or like drawing more, and painting more with it, like with the scalpel blade paintings, they kind of, you know, I couldn’t just sort of do, well once I did a few that was single colors I started adding color I was looking at some photographs of like bombed
landscapes like Hiroshima seen from the air, and I thought be great to make a scalpel blade painting of that, so it’s like looking, you know, like a bombed city. Have you done that? No, I thought I might do next, so it’s like I
kind of make a few and then move on. So, you know, even with the bug paintings I’ve sort of, you know I think I’ve kind of done it and I just want to move on and just take it somewhere else. I mean I’ve definitely in some sort of
period of change. But, yeah, I don’t know where I’m going but it feels good.
