New ideas are germinating in the studio. I have been doing lots of small graphite drawings in preparation for new paintings that I have planned. These drawings show my interest in the dissolution of boundaries: I want all the forms to be in a process of becoming, or transitioning, or fading away. No lines, no edges, everything melting onto/into the surface, dissolving all points of view onto the surface, and bringing landscape influences toward a non-objective context. I am seeking to represent a vibration of form, light, and shadow -- a vibration that I sense in nature and the landscape, but without specific references.
