Drawings / Paintings

My drawings describe tenuous places, landscapes that shift planes before solidity (and security) coalesce. There are references to rain and water, roofs and windows, decay and distress. Elements emerge, submerge, disappear. The most recent series is titled "Roofs, Berths and Currents." The rhythm of these pieces is created by the play of marks, the tough or elegiac line of a fountain pen meeting an incursion of color. The drawings are made on small, irregular pieces of paper. They are gessoed squares on remnants, like found shards— aftermath.
