I have always been attracted to drawing; it’s one of my natural and inherit skills. It’s also one of the earliest form of visual communication a child learns to use. Drawing is an immediate and flexible medium. Drawings can be produced anywhere and at anytime. I’ve elected to use drawing, in tandem with collage elements, to produce more intimate pieces. They vary in size and in application, but immediacy of drawing lends itself to a more abrupt mark. I’ve used drawing to experiment with themes of memory and change. The use of charcoal on a gessoed surface allows the mark making to be expressive and painterly. Many of the smaller drawings are developed from multiple images formed from a single continuous line. While other pieces are driven by the photo source. The drawings become alive with meditative and psychological connotations. This world of infinite possibilities begins with a single stroke.
