turntable drawings 2013-18

Construction, deconstruction and reconstruction are the motivations for this kinetic process-based project. Each piece develops from a solitary line into a seductive layering of marks.  Images emerge from the paper similarly to a piece of ceramic being thrown or wood being turned on a lathe.  The introduction of chemicals and ink manipulation create an interplay between randomness and order, organic and plastic. Connections to the natural world – micro/macro and terrestrial/celestial – are apparent. There are strong allusions to geometry.  My desire is for the audience to find a place of meditation and inspiration within these works.
