Album Description
"The medium is drawing, but my thinking is sculptural. My artwork transforms space. Marks live in a volume and space of their own, unlimited by the confines of the edges of the paper. Lines in the Bundle drawings are loose, spontaneous, and fresh. Colored pencil marks wrap around them to further define the volumes. Colored pencils shape the volumes in Carving Out of Paper. The intricacy of the volumes contrasts the clean white of the paper. The shapes are positioned to create movement. The simplicity of drawing materials, allows me to connect with marks and the paper without interference. This simplicity is most evident in my Cluster drawings. Simple lines and a few colored pencil marks, create deep, vast space. The Circle drawings reveal my process of searching for shape and line. Arches “oil” paper, allowed me to combine both graphite and oil paint in these pieces. I allow the work to evolve naturally. Process is visible. It's not perfect. The work keeps on growing."
