What can be covered can be found by light. So we must cover something first in order to find and see it. I am attracted by paint as a distinct form of this covering "substance." A stage upon which consciousness visits us. In its most essential form, this is what the painting will give, and the rest I am called to strip free of its "no-(a)whereness" illusion. -Laurel Waters
