Drawings / Paintings
I am very much attracted to marks on surfaces. I like making them and I love looking at those made by remarkable craftspersons as well as the accidental residue of an unexplainable process.
I am most attracted to the layering of these marks. Building a surface from the accumulations of many, many gestures over time attracts my attention and sustains my focus. Each mark upon one another both builds towards new ground and away from an existing ground. Each mark is suspended and rooted simultaneously.
Affirmation of this interest comes from my work on cultural, constituent and individual memory. The archeologic of this analogy is based on the traces left and discovered in ancient and contemporary ruins.
