New Work—Tree Rings

These Tree Ring drawings are part of an ongoing effort to understand nature—in this case by following a simple, repetitive process to grow a tree (and build a drawing).

 

The drawings are made on creamy  Strathmore 400 paper which is torn and reassembled, scratched, and sanded. Starting in the center, markers and pens draw circles that closely follow the circle before it, expanding as the rings build and bring the form into existence. The markers and pens squeak, skip, and dry out, depositing ink on paper’s surface or bleeding below.

 

These meditations on growth and time hope to provide a larger context for our lives and for our interactions with other living beings. These drawings are at once a violent death, a time machine, a hypnotist’s tool, an energy vortex.
