« I draft the pictures, sometimes even composing a hybrid of different images to form a new, collaged picture. I then utilize this as a base structure on which my process of mark making can further exaggerate or otherwise comment on the image. This vocabulary of drawn and painted marks reclaim the image as something new, something mine. I re-mark the source to remember it. This process creates a dialogue between old and new images – it pulls apart and rebuilds. It’s a push and pull between direct depiction, imagination and memory. I push the paintings to reduce to their images to abstract forms or landscapes that connote a different space, one aged by time and impossible to revisit. » (Whitney Bedford, Tema Celeste, 2004)
