“My previous show included works about farting. This one is a return to my interest in classic painting traditions, color, scale, the domestic interests of painters like Bonnard, Courbet, and Van Gogh. I spent previous years making jokes. It was often an arduous process, a lot of pre-preparation. The new work is more straightforward and carefree. In some ways there’s a dumbing down of the process. A dumbing down of fart jokes is a funny idea.
The first few landscapes were often painted from memory or hybrids of various landscapes. Many of my most recent paintings are what I would call en plein aire – delayed. They’re depictions of landscapes around the Hudson River, Westchester County, and Connecticut.”
