My work is often called subversive. Not because I have a political agenda. But because I confront expectations. Your expectations. And mine.
I constantly wonder whether the way things are is the way they ought to be. I can’t help it. It’s just the way I’m wired.
I’ve also disciplined myself to eliminate the unnecessary. Whether it’s an extraneous adjective in a piece of writing or a gratuitous camera move in a film.
The result is often deceptively simple. The pieces I create seem almost inevitable.
I’ve been told that I create work of remarkable truth and beauty. I prefer to think that what I do is discover remarkable truth and beauty. Then I present it in a way that others can discover it for themselves.
