1. TOPOGRAPHY OVER SPLASHED PAINT
Showing 3 works (with details) done on mounted wood panels. Topographic drawings overlaying the painted grounds generate an expansive sense of space. The drawn lines and notations continue onto the side surfaces emphasizing the physicality of the support.

image
2. ELUCIDATION AND RESURGENCE. Explorations of 2 drawings
Subtitled: Everything that can go wrong doesn’t have to.

image
3. SMALL DRAWINGS.
Some of these drawings use the older convention of listing dates worked along the bottom edge of the paper and others, done after 2005, show date and time at the start of each line and then again at line’s end. Running subtotal calculations evolved later.

image
4. DRAWINGS
Mapping surfaces. Evoking the sense of touch as telegraphed through the sense of sight.

image
5. COLOR: Vert-Vurt, and Painted Wall Reliefs
What happens when color is added to the Moiré of layered screening

image
6. VIOLATIONS OF THE FRAME
Hinged Vortex, Warped Fold & Sponz
Pushing through. The surprise is that the 3D elements do not get crushed when the screens are folded and swell back up when the screens are opened.

image
7. PASSAGE THROUGH A CHAIN LINK CLOUD
Tension between the rough chain link enclosure and the ethereal qualities of a cloud. Whether you see it as ensnarement or protection is a matter of how you look at it.

image
8. ON THE PERMEABILITY OF DE FENCES, DIS-PLACE and SWAD
One architectural sculpture addressing failed attempts at defense and two flexed horizontals.

image
9. MADE FOR THE FLOOR: LOOK ACROSS, APROACH, LOOK DOWN
These are shaped by terrain and forces that they are embedded in and can be viewed as trapped or supported.
