PEN ON PAPER MEDITATIONS
Each drawing begins with the perimeter line of a perfect circle and evolves from my repeated attempts to perfectly copy the preceding line. My mistakes create the drawing’s fascinating shapes, reminiscent of fingerprints and tree rings. Mistakes are all too often seen as negative and painful, however, if we take the time to consider the possibilities that they may offer, they can also be sources of learning, inspiration, discovery and reconciliation.
The number of circles drawn and the pens or pencils used are determined by each drawing’s meditation.
Drawings take place as live performance for specific sites, in conversation with work/study teams, by commission or privately in my studio.
