Artist Statement
These drawings have been culled from a large, seemingly endless quasi-taxonomic project which currently consists of 700 drawings. They depict a variety of ambiguous and unnameable biological forms, fetid, mushy and overripe, that usually hold the shape of a worm, slug or other similar pest. For installations, they are grouped together according to similar traits. Lengths vary from several inches to twelve feet. These drawings are made everyday and are often revisited.
