5, 10, 15, 20 Tics was made as a continuation of the thoughts started in 100 Tics for 100 Canvases. At the end of January 2019, he was interested in looking back to a body of recent paintings. He was first struck by the volume of paintings he had made. He began counting them, and putting a "tic count" on a blank canvas as he went. He was surprised and proud to have begun over 103 canvases since September 12, 2018. The whole body of work from September until now, February 2019 continues to be related, even though different ideas are fleshed-out throughout. As he took time to look back, he was also attracted to the ''tic count'' as a graphic language on the canvas... therefore it’s become a repeated action/graphic on subsequent canvases.
