> DESCRIPTION

The small, hermetic drawings of Peter Karklins capture with pencil and paper the disturbing processes just beneath the surface of human life. The complexity of his organic forms is matched by the artist's meticulous recording of the times and circumstances of production on the reverse of each sheet. The visceral images seem not just wet but literally dripping; together with the austere annotation of dates and places they constitute an intensely focused meditation on the passage of time and the processes of mortality.
