"I am less art critic and more art writer - I find the idea of critiquing art through writing difficult in a purely formalist fashion. I often lean towards the difficulty of language as a way into the inherent difficulty of art. Embracing all aspects which observe and inspire artist practice as a way to create a more fruitful and less didactic approach. My written style is not for the quick read and more about trying to make a written critique of art as hard as art itself. This hardness is about the beauty in difficulty and suggests that with a written observation of anything it is not the easy mentality which finds a fruitful conclusion, but moreover the questions and unresolved nature of art which makes for a more interesting platform for discussion."
