April Drawings

Untitled; 9 x 11"; mixed media

Untitled; 11 x 9"; mixed media

  After the thesis show went up it was difficult to continue making work in my studio.  The solution: start on something small - in size and ambition.  I created ten drawings on wood panel using charcoal, shellac, and denatured alcohol.  I have put the series aside, and interacting with them again, I am not sure they stand up to scrutiny.  They did, however, open up investigation of a new media and challenge the way I was thinking about constructing my previous work.  And they were an essential activity to keep me going.
