“Things fall apart.” This occurs to me often. Floods. Deaths. Elections. Uncertainty. Loss. For the last few years my process encompasses this. I start a drawing with a line or a tear or a stroke. The next step is to build by adding a mark, or by adding another piece of paper by stapling/gluing/taping. Or the next step is to take it apart. And repeat. Coalesce and then separate, depart and arrive. The most recent pieces, from a series called “Perishable/Imperishable” are representations of both the fragility and the resilience of the systems that surround us. In some images, there is a definite tilt toward instability. In others, forms interlock to assure cohesion. These sister images dwell on either side of the tipping point.
