If you would like to know the price of Constellation please contact me. If that statement makes you nervous, there’s no pressure to buy. Do feel free to ask me questions about my work.

I came home from work one evening in 2007 feeling frustrated and annoyed, grabbed the nearest canvas, which was painted in a block dark red and threw black paint at it, smearing it all over until no red showed; then I used my finger to draw the humanoid figure sitting on a chair.

The dots came much later, without rhyme or reason, after the painting had lain aside for many months; the hours I spent adding them allowed me to notice my busy mind and not act on thoughts I might usually have acted on (because I was committed to painting in those moments), which was illuminating. You might say the humanoid figure looks like a Buddha.
