ART TO ASHES:  quarantine drawings

 

At the start of quarantine facing our world, I was unable to work in my studio. For several weeks I paced, entered my studio and left, only to return to center around family as many of the world also did. I watched, listened and reflected in front of many a fire during those weeks. Trying to warm up, I watched the fire cool and began running my hands thru the cool charcoal and ashes that had remained. It was in that moment that those ashes became the material for my drawings. I was able to work again.

DRAWINGS

The drawings remain small at this time--no larger than 11 inches. 

 

The idea of continuing to work small intentionally remains with what is revealed in the process.  Just like being in close proximity and quiet with the paper and pencil/pen as I draw--what ends up being revealed are more intimate ideas.
