Drawing has the power to construct such an honest relationship between artist and observer. In its traditional and most foundational sense, drawing is an observational and communicative assembly of mark-making. Drawing as an art practice is transparent, leaving a history of work throughout its processes. I appreciate it as the most cartographic of the disciplines. My art practices are deeply rooted in this attraction to traditional drawing. However, I recognize that this tradition is equally reciprocated with potential. My relationship with contemporary sculpture has removed any notions of drawing as some sort of archaic practice. With heightened spatial understanding through dimensional creation, I apply elements extending beyond the factors occurring just on substrate. Exploring drawing beyond the second dimension with sculptural considerations has the power to intensify the practice into a situation more immersive and layered. This blending of disciplines is strengthened by the multi-faceted nature of my artistic content.
