Writing as Drawing

1-5 of 25

<-- prev || next -->

How did we as human beings move from scratching marks in the sand to form images? I am interested in the space between these two conditions. I am particularly interested in the meaningless mark before it becomes encoded. I am interested in the possibility of the de codification of everything. This is one of the subterranean making activities I practice. It's being in a place that escapes language however temporarily. The practice contributes to thinking through abstraction as painting. Henri Michaud's drawings best embody this idea. I play with writing indecipherable texts. We have such a longing to make them mean something. But it offers so much more possibility in its inaccessibility. At that place, we are in the still moment before creation.

The concept of fragmentation entertains to the notion of parts to the whole. If a puzzle arrives in pieces in a box it will take some figuring to assemble the picture in its totality. It's possible that connecting the parts is about how we form our sense of wholeness or completeness rather than recreating someone else's fiction. The landscape paintings made during graduate school in the late 70s are a glimpse into this idea. This concept runs across several bodies of work but lands in consciousness in 2006 with the large painting Yellow Brick Road and the subsequent Remnant paintings.
