Artist Statement

 

When  you  come  to  the  place  where  you  are,  practice  occurs.

Dogen

 

There  is  no  single  or  set  “nature”  either  as  “the  natural  world”  or  “the  nature  of things.”  The  greatest  respect  we  can  pay  to  nature  is  not  to  trap  it,  but  to acknowledge  that  it  eludes  us  and  that  our  own  nature  is  also  fluid,  open,  and conditional.

            Gary  Snyder

 

Drawing is an holistic and ritual activity of the body. I see the moment of making a mark as the ground of imagination located in the body. Perception is a natural system; an ecology of mind in which the perceiver is not separate from that which is perceived. The initiation of a mark is a primary point of contact, of clarity, that is before language, before thought--an original root experience of imagination, a manifestation of our animal mind operating along a wild edge. As I employ a variety of materials, from charcoal, graphite, and ink, to fire, ice, pollen, and clay, drawing, as a practice, offers me, as poet Gary Snyder has written, "an open space to move in with the whole body, the whole mind."
