Artist Statement

           For these large works, the operation of drawing through the technique of spraying paint opens drawing to its temporal limits. The drawing can happen all at once, nearly ephemerally. It can also happen after the central form or figure within the apparatus, dispositif, or set up is removed, producing a space for – the spacing of – the residual. Take away the painting and the drawing is there  – it exists “after” the painting, even though it is produced simultaneously.

            Originating in the residual overspray, finding drawing at the edges and “beyond” the canvas resists any ease of drawing. Furthermore, folding and cutting reminds drawing of its rapport with collage – the way collage opens the ground toward its reserve as a pocket or volume. “Set ups” for drawing and painting open the ground in a similar way through interference, screens, and distance. Through the apparatus, dispositif, or “set up” that incorporates the technique and timing of the spray, drawing is thus structured outside of painting as “not painting, ” which we come to understand as having a structural relationship to the inside of painting. The production of the ground of painting opens a ground for drawing.
