Artist Statement

Collective Drawings

A 30" x 40" piece of cardboard is placed on a table where there is a lot of traffic.  As time goes by I read the surface, study it, and let the shapes reveal themselves. I then capture the image with pencil, pen, or latex paint, giving voice to the found object by enhancing its' presence. Paint is spilled, tested, smeared or wiped over the drawing. A new layer or gesture is created to react with. Other people leave their mark as they pass by, naturally engaging the drawing. These marks are a welcome dialogue. In this sense they are collective. My intention is to free the spirits from the confines of reality.
