I keep going back to urban landscapes, drawing them from life as often as possible, zooming on the visual grammar touches that define a location. My favorite kind of architecture is the one of mismatches, accidents, imitations, mistakes. They make for a rich patchwork of stories to be explored, or simply guessed. Sometimes I’ll be discovering a place for the first time; other times I’ll mix personal experiences and past memories, but also references to art and movies and photographs on the same subject. Most of my work is drawn or painted on location, from life, on a touch screen. I had spent decades using ink and watercolor, but in 2009 my enthusiasm was renewed as I started finger-painting on an iPhone 3G. (Today I use an Apple Pencil on an iPad.) The initial results lacked the level of precision and control I used to have, and have since regained, but the immediacy of the tool was a perfect match for my wandering practice. Haven’t used ink or brushes in a while. I’m still enjoying the discovery period. As years go by I realize being a beginner is far more interesting than being a veteran.
