Artist Statement
My small drawings are made using very fine graphite leads to develop circles and ellipses using architectural templets. Few lines are delivered freehand. My approach is spontaneous and I tend to move quickly. In a sense I become a proxy for a machine as I generate various rhythms laying down one circle or ellipse at a time. The interval between each, calculated by eye, is where I control for various degrees of weight, form, speed and density. These works are about highlighting the nature of spacial relationships within a drawing and exploiting the resulting ambiguity to challenge my ability to steer abstraction in unfamiliar territory.
