There is a tremendous cave on the coast of Kauai where stumbling tourists willingly disappear into the cave's darkness, illuminating their way with cigarette lighters. I wanted to recreate the memory of that scene with Cave Dwellers. Most of my paintings are begun from experience, from the elements of a memory. Sometimes I like to let the specific elements of those experiences repeat in a new work, allowing them to simplify or clarify something from a moment. However, lately things have ended up more visually complex, with more people, more intense landscapes and more layering.
