INTROSPECTIVE ODDITY

 
 

About a year ago, I began a practice of  repeatedly using black ink to make simple patterns on printer paper. Originally, this was a purely soothing hobby without any plan to create 'artwork'. As I became obsessed with layering these marks, larger patterns and complex compositions emerged. The repetitive nature of this gave way to a meditative expression of my psychological / emotional / philosophical experiences. Although mostly abstract, every drawing is highly representative of a moment in time for me; physically and metaphysically.

I displayed 60 drawings in total.

PNCA's (Pacific Northwest College of Art) Critical Studies MA publication, Discursive Impulse, asked my to write an article about this work.
