James Cullinane
Jackson Heights, NY

Media:Drawing; Painting; Ink;


ARTIST STATEMENT: This work is not metaphorical about some aspect of nature. It is nature enacted through attention, breath, and drawing. Even the breathing in the making of each mark is critical to the formation of pictorial space. How each line inscribes the surface is determined by material resistance of the support in conjunction with the pressure of the drawing instrument. Each line and point determines the overall quality of optical gestalt, light, and space through patient accumulation. This work is about the body, scale and breath. I sometimes get a glimpse of a perfect work; smooth and self-sufficient as a beach stone, lucid as the autumn sky, and empty as snow on a TV screen. Satori!
