Artist Statement

These drawings are derived from actual locations. When drawn, the image begins to operate as a screen or a membrane on which the view of a surrounding condenses and congeals. Here the picture plane acts to extend the delay within which sensations begin to take hold, prolonging the flicker between a moment before-ness and a meaning-reflex. These drawings, wedged between 'abstraction' and "place', engage the viewer in a patient perceptual movement within the presented space by in-forming the threshold within which our surroundings always unfold as 'making sense'.
