Artist Statement

These pieces explore the relation of drawing, regarded as a system of markmaking, to contemporary data visualization systems and to the recording of memories. In this work, local, sometimes geopolitical, histories are transformed into information structures. The drawings incorporate depictions of objects, axonometric projections, elevations, remnants of archival maps, and abstract marks. Various systems of time keeping and language usage, including timelines and scales, are referenced. Many details are removed to create spare, chart- or map-like works that render narrative into a material dimension.

My investigations consist of two related series: 1) wall-based installations made up of thread, chalk marks and pencil lines; and 2) drawings on mylar. The former investigate the intersection between painting and wall installation and utilize materials in a limited painting space on and in front of the wall. The latter play descriptive lines off more abstract pencil marks in repeated grids on mylar, and often include printed photographs that I mostly erase.

The works document how materiality, space and temporal changes constitute a kind of visual or mapping system wherein we remember a place. The finished drawings contain contradictory spaces and incomplete narratives.
