I appreciate the practice of freehand drawing for the quality of contemplation and focus it provides. In these graphite on paper drawings, artist and pencil become a singular conduit for subtle energies to manifest visually. From a still mind the invisible becomes visible.
These images are created from a combination of freehand drawing, photography, and digital painting. In photography, something is captured. In drawing & painting, something is generated. With each speaking its own truth, interesting conversation is possible.
I am drawn to photographing people for the immediate and direct quality of relationship it demands. The uncertainty of not knowing what will transpire with each interaction, and in each image, I find highly intriguing. This photomontage series evolved from portraits shot in San Francisco in the Fall of 2018.
