Artist Statement
My drawings begin with words. Ideas that I discover in books, essays, and news events I then translate into small pictographs. These, in turn, become the conceptual springboard for larger drawings. Through the careful blending of charcoal and delicate erasure, diverse images and rendered spaces are blended into one another or dissolve into white. They constitute complex visual narratives loosely based upon historical events and their concomitant ideas of hate, fear, and un-addressed grievances.

In the series, An Insufficiency in Our Screens, a group of recent drawings expands on the notion of two-dimensional images. The flat sheet of paper gives way to bent or folded surfaces. This interplay between the composite spaces and the three-dimensional paper invites musings on the virtual and the real, the prosaic and the extraordinary, memory and materiality.
