Artist Statement

Dennis Lee Mitchell

Artist’s Statement


By chance, one day I tried using smoke on a nearby sheet of paper and found the resulting image of great interest. It is at this point that I realized the expressive potential of these carbon drawings on clay and paper.

Carbon is both essential for life and the essence of the
ephemeral. It is the perfect metaphor for the human condition. In my work, it is the result of heat transforming material.  As such, the result could be thought of as a secular incarnation. The resulting image transcribing human form captured on paper.
