Artist Statement

These 'Parallel Thoughts' drawings can be looked at as a mysterious 'alphabet.' They evolved with my series of 'Blindsighted' complex, mixed media paintings. Juxtaposed bits and pieces of communicative systems and debris, such as, scientific charts, meters and measures, dance steps, electrical connectors, maps, caution signs, eye charts, bingo parts and rubber tire pieces make up the surface of the dimensional paintings. I attempt to make a complex set of metaphors to challenge the authority of verbal language and to question its communicative boundaries.

 With the drawings, composed of rubber tire bits, threads, stitches, wires, graphite, ink, oil paint and the resulting shadows, I seek to present the 'alphabet' of unknowable languages that coagulate in the larger paintings.
