STATEMENT OF WORK

The drawings are a representation of an insistent space;a space of crowded intention and gesture - of mark marking.  I am trying to orchestrate a series of intuitive mark making into a pattern of rhythm and movement. I am trying to structure an intuitive, allusive space.  I am trying to get to a figure, or a mark, or sign of a figure.  I am interested in how making a mark can be a register of consciousness, an index of a particular point in time, or a register of a particular event.  
I use drawing as a way to order or structure consciousness, as a way to measure my reactions to a particular event, memory or image.
