“This painting was made during my stay at the CCA Artist Residency Program. I was thinking a lot about patterns and disasters. The image of an earthquake reoccurs throughout several other paintings. I like the idea of a crude, comic, yet painterly disaster interrupting a relatively rigid pattern. A snake, rendered in a somewhat ham-fisted manner, takes the form of a passageway or a gate. It is menacing in scale but also inviting in a crude way. Each element of the painting floats in its own space, forced to interact with its surroundings.” – Andrew Jilka
