FROM THE ARTIST'S STUDIO
"I make drawings, and installations. My elements are line and light; my materials are pencils, vellum and the movement of my body. I am a vessel gathering subtle and rapturous processes in nature, using the experiences and impulses to make my work. I record mist turning into water. I let wind move my body so that it leaves traces on paper. I swim through thousands of layers of gray air and mark each one down. Most of my work is born in the solitude of my studio. Sometimes public performances with musicians and dancers draw me out from the safe silence of my space and expand my drawing practice. I am interested in the never-ending process of becoming with no story, no beginning, no end—just the current moment in flux."

ABSTRACT DRAWING

So many different storms, so hard to capture. Beginning in the wake of hurricanes Irene and Sandy, this artwork was made by tightly clasping a single pigment pencil, drawing forcefully as a single moving multi-lined force. The aim was to capture the precise feeling of wind.
