Artist Statement

Centered on drawing, Landfried writes a single mark, a connecting loop, from left to right on the page, recording lines of imagined text. Using traditional writing materials, ink and graphite on paper, she uses this single mark, a loop, to create a visual incident of patterns, networks, and color fields that suggest maps, landscapes, weaving, sediment, and bodies of text. In the work, the loop is also a mark connected to rhythm, sound, and visual noise. The shift in scale between the mark and the accumulation of marks disorients the recipient, creating for the viewer a disconcerting optical tension.  The drawings are a record of both a physical process and formal event. The resulting drawings are wall scale and reference machines that draw, such as seismographs, echocardiographs, printers, and computers. The works convey compression and overlapping to evoke parallel time and experiences of displacement.
