In my drawings and photographs, I embrace movements that capture a sense of an in-between: a middle ground of what is ultimately there and is potentially fleeting. With this, I examine and explore the seductive nature of drawing and how an artist's time with a drawing becomes an encounter. Movement corresponds to senses of unease and restlessness that follow desire: how desire, in itself, awakens a hunger of belonging to or with another body.
The tactility that drawing offers supports the act of drawing as an intimate encounter in a variety of aspects. In one instance, there is the conversation we share with drawing. The surface of paper can be perceived as a body outside of our own that retains memories of our physical, emotional and cerebral relationships with it. The conversation the artist shares with drawing does not cease, for a drawing is never entirely complete. With each movement and touch from our hands, a drawing transforms, calling to us from the marks we leave upon it.
