Drawings and Paintings

March-April 2015

We are drawn to stories, and story telling, so much that we find it difficult to luxuriate in a place without stories. Can we strengthen our understanding of the world beyond narrative? Use our imagination to pair ourselves with the fox in the wood, a moon of Jupiter, or the brief life of a cloud? Or just with silence?

 With these works I hope to find a deeper quiet.  The drawings are taken from my series “Unknown Numbers.”  The paintings are from the series “Antique Circassian Languages.”

I paint and draw, and live in San Francisco.

The drawings were done with prismacolor pencil, usually on Strathmore paper. The paintings are done with acrylic on gessoed cold press watercolor paper.
