About The Images
These are sculptural oil ink and resin drawings created on acrylic panels.
I draw hundreds of thousands of polkadots in ink that cannot be erased on both sides of the clear panel. Never traced or copied from photographs, drawings develop organically based on the memory of a specific place and time. Since every drawing is hand done micro dot by micro dot, they take many weeks to complete. Once the drawing is finished, I am not done. I paint with resin in the drawn areas and time the resin to cure enough for me to go back into the resin to have it hold patterns and textures I create with my fingers, brushes and sticks. These textures will distort and reflect patterns of light and shadow onto a color panel behind the sculptural drawing. These pieces interact with the light in their environment and change according to the source and strength of light and where the viewer stands. They are dimensional and meditative for the viewer as well as for me in the process of creating them.
