Artist Statement

 

 

In speaking about drawing, sculptor Richard Serra says that drawing allows for the “immediate transcription of a personal concern.” Therein lies drawing’s indisputable worth. Drawing is a descriptor, useful for investigation. Through lines and marks, drawing enables inquiry and its documentation. 

A drawing exists as an authentic record of ways taken: starts, stops, gestures, erasures, re-dos, bumps, and wavers. Because a drawing carries evidence of exploration and possibility, a drawing evokes contemplation.

In drawing, I often focus on a single “concern”. Through a process of making that involves both intention and realization, I use drawing to describe my findings. Drawing and drawings are of equal importance.

All of my works follow a process that begins with a query, followed by a gathering of materials - text, images and objects, an “inhabitation” of the concern, and finally, drawing. I can never visualize a drawing before I begin. The unexpected prompts unexpected discoveries.
