Raw, emotional art tends to attract him the most, and probably for that reason he tends to work with low-tech materials and processes. He is interested in seeing far into a painting, and is usually concerned with ideas and practicalities of depth. Most of his work is excited by the pressure of world events, and by the possibilities of form.
