mixed-media, abstract



My current work is a series of mixed media drawing/paintings using ink and acrylic on canvas and paper.  The works are abstracted landscapes and mindscapes.  The surface is approached with one horizontal line drawn across the entire canvas. I then follow this element over and over again across the picture plane.  Slight variations in the movement of my hand add to the pattern as each additional line is recorded.  The repetitive process refers to the interactive relationship between mountain ranges and urban sprawl as well as the influence of early eighties drawings by Peter Saville.  The works begin with a failed attempt to draw a straight line, then this failed attempt is followed until the end of the canvas or paper.
