While working in my studio one day I noticed that after painting for several hours the only thing that looked good was my pallet. I then started scraping dried paint off the pallet and sticking it to my canvas to describe form. I was pleased with this discovery and then started a similar process with my watercolors. For me, I like the way collage fractures space, creates an energy. My inspirations come from Bay Area Figurative, Richard Diebenkorn, Rolland Peterson, Wayne Thiebaud, Willam DeKooning. I am interested in recording my surroundings, urban life, interiors, people, and personal objects. The work usually starts with photographs I take and then I develop a drawing and go from there. - Bud Gordon
