"My American influences have included Albert P. Ryder, Milton Avery, George Inness and the mystical, tonal California paintings of Gottardo Piazzoni. I also admire many of the paintings of Wolf Kahn and Piazzoni's grandson, Russell Chatham. More recently I have been excited by the large, imaginative paintings of Peter Doig. And I continue to be especially drawn to the California light, compositions and searching, palimpsest painting surfaces of Richard Diebenkorn." - Stephen Duren
