AUGUST 2020

I draw with colored pencil on black paper using repeated, layered lines to create a vaporous, luminous atmosphere on the dark surface. I am attempting to create a visual suggestion of the overlap between physics and metaphysics, the outside edge of intellect and the inside edge of intuition. I’m interested in this intersection, where proof and certainty meet imagination and conjecture. In my practice and in my drawings I am trying to inhabit and describe this ethereal, ephemeral territory. These drawings are the result of three decades of experimentation with two goals. The first has been to develop a visual language that illustrates a coalescence of the elements most central to my experience of the world. The other has been to develop the patience and discipline with which to produce it.
