Artist Statement

On the Drawings

-Every line is straight, (1-degree curves). The lines in these drawings are tangent or normal to a series of curves that have been removed. The tangents are a geometric measurement of rate of change, the first differential. The normals are tied to the intensity of curvature at any given instant.

-Density is variable along a gradient, Length is variable along a gradient, and Color is variable along a gradient. These are the only variables.

-The first three notes set the rules constraining the system, but it is only in the performance of the sensations produced that the drawings are evaluated. The issues at stake here have to do with sensations of depth, movement, speed, intensity and the vibrations of moiré effects that occur as lines drift and overlap; or in other words, painterly effects.
