A deconstructed figure, part of a series of studies in the discipline of taking figures and what would otherwise be traditional representational art, and drawing out the essence of form, shape, and line to render an impression, and convey a thought--in this case the posture, the poise, and the presence of a woman without traditional inhibitions.
The grind and excitement of near-constant movement has given me a stormy and tense relationship to space, and to movement within that space. From walled-off Berlin, foggy Vienna, quaint Alpine villages, and myriad boxy American cities--each environment adding something subtle to my creations. I often pose the philosophical question--why would a thing need to represent another thing, if its own beauty in form should be recognized? I crave tension--seeking truth through examination of angles, trial--error, and the narrative that develops visually through the "indelibility" of contact between pen and paper.
