What are the major themes you pursue in your work?

The themes that I pursue are drug production, social alienation, and the destruction of nature. I often paint landscapes and cityscapes that are populated with decaying trees and abandoned and graffitied buildings, stairs, and bridges. Sometimes I fill my landscapes with red poppy flowers; if you look closely, you can see the cut open balls of the flower that produce opium, which can then be processed into heroin.

Prefer to work with music or in silence?

I definitely like to listen to music while working in my shared studio space. In the shared space there is an old vinyl-jukebox often playing Schlager, Reggae, Ska, and cheesy 80′s punk music. Otherwise, we listen to whatever is on the radio.

 What was the best advice given to you as an artist?

I was once given advice by the German artist, Norbert Schwontkowsky, whose work I greatly admire. He once said “Leave away what is not your picture and you will have your picture.” He also said, “Go on working.”
