A Necessary Tilt; The Stability of Shipwrecks

  • Each drawing is 7 ft x 5 ft, on Canson Pastel Paper. The process is a system of overlapping layers of wavy marks and hatched marks, made with charcoal or ink and white out on top of one another. The constant opposition of curls to hatches, and ink to white out, creates a new form out of the binary, an interference texture. Acrylic paint is added as means of segmenting areas of stress, and in the case of the middle drawing, a rough outline of the lakes of minneapolis. These drawings represent a teetering balance of contradictions.
