Paper Trail Series

Remnants of old Japanese drawings were found in the bottom of a drawer. Responding to the delicacy of the lines and the aged, weathered paper, I was moved to incorporate them into my work. The precision of these discarded architectural drawings exists in counterpoint to my looser more gestural mark–making. Together they activate a “call and response” between two very different times and cultures, creating a new geography of the moment.
