Artist Statement

The root of my art practice is found in my relationship with drawing.  For me, drawing is an imposition of limits on the act of art conception.  Picasso eluded to the notion that true beauty in art is achieved when the practitioner is limited to the hand and a few tools.  Because the 'toolology' of drawing is inherently limited, a purer and more focused act of poesis is allowed to develop.  I navigate the possibilities of my art practice through the simple and reductive nature that is drawing.

 

My points of concern with drawing are process in flux, systematic operation on mark making and peripheral phenomenon.
