Birmingham, AL

Statement – My drawings are intended to evoke an awareness of the relationship between space and self. Here, a viewer meets an epic expanse of lines that holds an intensity in it’s scale and mass. They are confronted with the development of time when reflecting on the monotonous pen work turning images with vivid perspectives into a singular, powerful, and all encompassing entities. Here comes a formation of rushing water; figures and forms flowing together as an ecosystem instead of separate structures. A juxtaposition of human and earth is unified by the medium. The difference of images invites the viewers to join in the parallel vibration and let go of the ego.
