With no site of origin or origin in time, a line continues without end. A wall or piece of sturdy paper provides a place to encounter a line, engage its impulse towards fragmentation and its inclinations for infinity.

Rather than starting with an anticipated image, my work begins with a strong sense of sound and an internal cadence particular to the moment. It’s an in-audible meeting that translates to motion and material.

Every drawing is unplanned. At different speeds, with tools in both hands, I draw lines that meet coherent forms and reckless intimate marks. And marking goes like this: a hard mark, fast mark, reasoned and backwards mark, marks that are known, interrupted, erased or dismantled. Drawing from the ladder at a larger scale, taped lines respond to site, histories and architecture. Rustling lines hyphenate the maker and viewer, and tether a rhythm to mark and place.
