“The Human Tree”, Oil on Panel, 64.1 x 55.8 cm (25.2″ x 22″), 2010
The image of this tree, filled with strange figures, being sawed down has become emblematic to me of the experience of quitting painting. I stopped painting in 1994, and resumed in 2009. Ironically, the completion of this painting has come to represent, not the cessation of artistic activity, but the renewal. It is as though it were a film played in reverse, and the Roman soldiers by working their saw are not felling a tree, but causing a fallen tree to be rejoined, stand up and grow once again.
