Drawings 2001-3

In my drawings, my sculptor's interest in shadows becomes translated as silhouette. In the intimate world of the drawing a lens widens to encompass spaces much bigger than the small page--the silhouettes suggest large urban architectures against horizons of indeterminate depth. In the "Twilight"series, the shapes suggest bridges, highway underpasses, or doorways and windows as fragments of larger architectures. Through a window or a door, microcosms are glimpsed which are seen magnified outside that space against the large sky, as if to suggest uncontrollable growth starting from within and taking over the architecture, a metaphor of the built environment as a kind of surrogate for the body.
