The line form established by white gel ink as it travels over a glittering black surface traces geographic features, but abstracted--made rhythmic, each referencing the other. Derivative, yet from which anthropomorphic shapes emerge...for me a mischievous irish character. 8.5x11 inch yardstick, framed simply but in quality.

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.
