Graphite on paper

Rather than operating along a linear path, my work is based on
constellations of associations, cycling toward an internal syntax.
Materials and meaning bounce back and forth between projects at
staggered rates of tempo. Concrete-slab paintings, graphite renderings
and stop-motion animations reflect my interest in exploring the
personal and geological act of creation and construction. The mark
of my hand, varying temporal scales, and the isolation of imagery all
harken to my curiosity with repetition and time.
With Tabernacle (2013), I question the definitions of drawing and
play with gestures of counterfeit and the futility of repetition. The
work is essentially a graphite drawing, a reproduction of a blackened
plank of wood. Comprised of a framed section and a plank that hovers
diagonally off the supporting wall, Tabernacle is made by hand which
speaks to the impossibility of replication.
