Lecture on My Work, October, 2010

This lecture gives a fairly comprehensive picture of the work done over a span of forty years from 1969 to 2009.

The actual number of works I have done is several times more than that which is shown.

Follow the words, which last approximately two hours, with the 128 images in the slide show.

The introductory remarks I make match exactly what I have written in every statement every time I write one for one purpose or another.

Branches, Black on White, 2018

 

These drawings were done instinctively as a result of photographing during my walks. I was not interested in a one to one relationship between the photos and the drawings. Rather my desire was to deal with what had become an internal conversation between nature and my drawing tendencies. The design in these drawings which emanate from my imagination is inherent in the drawings I do which are abstract conformations of lines.
