What originally made you want to become a painter?
Painting was easier than math.
How would you describe to a child your approach to painting?
I make hundreds of thousands of sketches, burn the ones I don’t like, and whatever’s left over, I paint.
Who or what has been the biggest single influence on your way of thinking?
What’s your favourite historic art movement and why?
I like the history in between art movements.
What are you currently fascinated by and how is it feeding into your work?
Distortions of reality. Like chum into a shark’s mouth.
What are your main thoughts during a day?
Are my kids safe? Is my wife happy? Are my parents healthy? Am I going to die today? On repeat.
A quote to define yourself.
Be careful what you wish for.
Your biggest fear and dream.
When I was a kid, I had a recurring dream that I was being chased up a neverending spiral staircase by someone in a bunny suit. It was horrifying. Does that count?
What you’ll do after the interview?
I’ll wake up.
