While drawing I am reminded of the state of calm engagement I experienced as a child "coloring" . It is this meditative play which excites me . The spontanaeity inherent to drawing allows me to grab and choose random elements from my various inspirations in an unprecious way.It also allows me to enjoy the speed , rythyms and layering of mark making as much as the unleashing of my unconscious while developing a narrative.
I'm often drawn to creating psychological landscapes where polar themes play out,such as the domestic and the political, humor and fear ,calm and chaos.They are quirky self portraits, and hopefully a slight temperature gage of our collective unconcscious
