Drawing has served as the basis and focus of my studio practice for many years. It is an immediate and visceral means of visual research and exploration. However, recently I have begun to feel restricted by the conventional format of a 2-dimensional drawing hung on a flat wall. While my commitment to drawing remains strong, I am experimenting with methods of bringing the drawings into a more three dimensional realm through combining them with structures and objects constructed of a variety of store bought and found materials.
Through the process of installation I hope to re-contextualize my drawings both in relation to each other and in relation to the viewer. I wish to create a situation that pushes beyond the visual and into the experiential, to play with both physical and temporal space. I wish to experiment with the possible dialogues between specific constructions and specific drawings, between what I choose to obscure and what I choose to expose and to explore how this contributes to the generation of a mythology.
As I continue, my desire is to continuously reinvent the relationships between the drawings to the objects to myself and the viewer.
