ARTIST STATEMENT: These drawings, on layered drafting film over paper, mark the beginning of a body of work that bridges the gap between geometric form and realism. These drawings move close to abstraction, but hold tight to a connection to the actual-the body, landscape, still life. I appreciate air in my work, “elbow-room”, and a reduction of vocabulary that gives room for contemplation. I value the poetics inherent in a pared down language that rewards lingered looking. Layers, and the translucency of this material, provide a third dimension, and deeper space for this poetic absorption.
Although clear "drafting film" provides the top surface, each work has drawing on the underlying paper as well.
