since i set up my new studio, i have been working on some black and white drawings. for these, i start with a few central points and let lines grow outward until they form bigger and bigger shapes, and eventually start to meet and influence each other. for me this mirrors, among other things, the experience of human relationships. when i begin these drawings, i imagine that each point represents a person, and the lines that grow out are their experiences, their personalities, their lives. these drawings are a way for me to explore how people affect and adapt to those closest to them, and how intricately our interactions are woven together.
