Corners Series, 2008

The concept of these drawings germinates once again in minimalism, the non-objective, and self-referentiality.

Self-referentiality was and is, for me, a mainstay in an artist’s orientation in approaching any work at all. Configuring it is a means to appreciate the process as it goes forth and increase the artist’s mindfulness of the direction of the process.

Each drawing is colored pencil on black gouache. Each measures 30 inches in height by 44 inches in width.

Prepositional Drawings, 2008

These drawings are all white marker on black gouache on white rag paper. They measure 30 inches in height by 44.5 inches in width.

Even though Open and Closed are included in this series, the titles evoke a spare direction that is nearly prepositional.

True to form, this series deals with the minimalism and directness inherent in my “training” as an artist. I had to learn to see before I could really SEE.

Coming Alive Again, 2004

These six drawings were a valiant effort to open up the thrill of creation. The wood template was still in use but beautifully, as if really alive and flexible. They are all mixed media on paper, sixty inches tall and are in two parts which make the width forty-five inches. Visually, they have a connection to the symmetry of the body, in the same way at the last of the series Traveling With Angels did and the entire series of Unknowing Innocence demonstrated.
