I am concerned with immediacy in the translation of idea-expression inherent in drawing. Although, this immediacy in the execution of an image is in some way consciously altered in the small and occasionally disturbing drawings, accumulating weft and textures, layer over layer, as a geologic sedimentation process. It is the conscious attitude of belonging to the present context, to this age of informative excess and the consequent boundless accumulation of data and images, that nourishes my work, which moves away from the usual grandiloquence of the large format and offers instead carefully contemplated and executed images.
