The Details of Life
I find my vision in the details of life. My art brings out the subtle details
in its subjects, creating a picture of life more particular than the fleeting
glance with which we normally look at the world.
The representational drawings I create are rich in depth and character when
viewed from a distance. Viewed more closely, emphasis on details and texture
create an abstract inner-life.
I draw with graphite, using a palette of white to black and all of the tonal
variations between. This allows me to explore complexity in texture and shape
in seemingly simple images. It is the effect of light and the shadows it creates
that define my images – not lines.
My artistic touch is the final element in the process. When I view an
image and apply the pencil to the board, it is my vision of the image that
is brought to life.
When you look closely at my work, mark every detail. That
is where the life of my art truly is.
