The Ground

This series of drawings are a distillation of the experience of walking in the desert environment and observing scattered twigs in the sand and on the ground. They came to suggest calligraphy, messages, fragments of indecipherable text, or the origins of a developing language. The works represent multiple moments adding to a diary of encounters.

Mixed media drawings: India ink and homemade earth and mineral oxide pigmented inks, heavyweight Bristol paper. 2019
