Like many artists, an important part of my process is in being able to look at the work I am making, to evaluate and compare images in the hope I may find clues that will guide me in making work that is more concise, more direct. Often I have been lucky to have studio and working spaces with plentiful wall space, so that I could display scores of drawings for viewing along the walls and floor. But as time goes by and the number of drawings multiplies to the point where it is impossible to show more than a few, hundreds lie in stacks, seldom viewed.
My thought in putting together this website was that, first, I could create a resource for myself that could make many more works available for use, and secondly, that I could present a range of work that could be of use to students and educators in the pursuit of their ambitions.
The arrangement…make the work accessible in a sensible way, taxonomy against the grain resist language the enemy of perception the brutal shorthand of languagre that blinds us to so much of what we experience and that the functuion of art is in part to counter balance this effect’the sky is blue’ short hand, what minimal terms can i use to truthfully describe the impulse that drove the drawing and the devices used in this process am forced to look at the work and describe what is there in some way, and maybe useful in that I recognize a term that does apply to a work, that was not conscious. I am uncomfortable with this and aim to keep this examination it to the minimum required.
history and thanks…
