‘At the time of making these paintings I was reading Hanya Yanagihara’s A Little Life, which was an inspiring parallel picture of young men entering adulthood. My characters are almost all millennials, Generation Y … It’s a response to my environment, observing my millennial children growing up in an affluent but changeable world filled to bursting with real and psychic hunger and emptiness.’
