Works on paper from the Striation, To Fortify the Forest and Unprepared Eye series – 2013-2017
This group of work acts as a bridge between my artwork that is more faithful to the real world, and my mixed media pieces that are totally invented worlds. In these drawings, I’m pulling from organic and architectural forms that fascinate me, and then I transform them to fit into a story. In this narrative, I’m creating a landscape that is sometimes similar to our own, with horizons and gravity and then other times reality starts to bend. When creating these drawings, I often started with a plant or rock form that I wanted to create a character or symbol from.
