"With a phenomenological attitude, this document explores a broad spectrum of perspectives on various painting situations over the past 23 years of my art practice. The narrative is contextualized by core concepts in the theoretical works of Jean Baudrillard, Jaques Derrida, and Buckminster Fuller, and by my continuous search for a painted mark to reflect moments of human circumstance. This expedition bounces lyrically along a timeline of projects ranging from electrocution drawings to riding a painted mark in a roller coaster simulator. Perspectives shift as the journey moves from the creation of a drawing-propelled time machine to a contraption that paints from brain waves, and on to the ephemeralization of a Whookie by the side of a river, with many stops in-between."
