Artist Statement

     

      My drawings emerge from my interest in looking at the various landscapes, objects, and figures that I interact with on a daily basis. These scenes and images serve as a jumping point to explore abstraction. The viewer may then question what is being presented, regardless of definitive titles or concrete initial impressions. This I believe is what drawing can do that reality cannot, that launches a person into midland between reality and imagination. Thus one might come up with his or her own interpretation based on an individual experience or connection to evidence of process in combination with subject matter. My use of India and brown ink, sometimes combined with white gouache and graphite marks, lends to a non-mechanical painterly quality to the drawings, which again emphasizes the intertwined relationship between process and subject, process in fact becomes part of the subject matter. I would like the viewer to have an experience through a lyrical system of mark making that changes normal ways of seeing.
