Artist Statement

Drawing is an holistic and ritual activity of the body. The moment of making a mark is the ground of imagination (located in the body). Perception is a natural system; an ecology of mind in which the perceiver is not separate from that which is perceived. The initiation of a mark is a primary point of contact, of clarity, that is before language, before thought--an original root experience of imagination, a manifestation of our animal mind operating along a wild edge. As I employ a variety of materials and processes, from charcoal, graphite, and ink, to fire, melting ice/snow, and an electric palm sander, drawing, as a practice, offers me, as poet Gary Snyder has written, "an open space to move in with the whole body, the whole mind."
