My earlier paintings were a synthesis of memory and longing. Now I find I am growing away from an impulsive kind of abstraction, in a search of a new language.

"It's instinctive in a certain kind of painting...It's like a nervous system. It's not described, it's happening. The feeling is going on with the task. The line is the feeling, from a soft thing, a dreamy thing, to something hard, something arid, something lonely, something ending, something beginning."
Cy Twombly
