Lawn Chair, Marker on paper, 27"x15"

Many of my drawings are stippled ink. Others are built from blocks of single value from markers.
I am drawn to the the 2D illusions of the mimetic process, and I try to make the realism of my drawings as full as possible. But at the same time I like to emphasize the irreducibility of the units that I am using. There is a pleasure in capturing the experiences of our visual environment. But for me that is not enough. I also want to emphasize the arbitrary nature of the dumb marks to which we must resort in order to capture it.

My subjects are people who are abstracted in some way from their immediate surroundings. They tend to be figures that are in the midst of heavily prioritizing one aspect of their sensory environment over others. I try to stress the way that daily life involves a complex visual syntax that we don't always notice as we experience it.
