Artist Statement

This series of drawings originated from a lone and improvisational drawing called “My Funny Hat.”  Its premise became a context for constructing different kinds of hats with different formal solutions.

 

Many of the ideas for this series took place away from the drawing table.  Each potential germ was collected in a notebook throughout this past year.  The most promising of possible hat titles and constructions were worked out and practiced on scrap paper.  When I had developed enough information about what the hat was about and what it might look like, I then made the drawing in its entirety.
