“The object of drawing is, for me as an epistemological artist, is firstly, to see: to challenge my perceptions - to refine and expand my ability to perceive. We assume objects as symbols to incorporate them into our lives effectively; the daily grind can “mute” or “freeze” what i consider mercurial reality - context is ever shifting. So by drawing, I am not just “seeing” an object anew - I aim for original, singular experiences. I make anti-signs (or anti-symbols). The act of the curdling of practical perception from objective reality is a physiologic one—processed by the body/brain in an emotionally visceral response. By displaying the residue of my experience and some of the procedure I employ in digesting my response to it, I attempt to create an opportunity to an empathic experience os seeing something anew, that labels might fall away, and somehow experience an emotional response (receptive cathexis) similar to mine when I experience the mundane singularly (the function of drawing).”
