I draw on mostly anything and everything… stay still long enough and I’ll probably draw on you!
Whether I am using hundreds of hatched marks to form one figure, or making 15 smaller pieces to compose a larger creation, I enjoy exploring the notion that “the whole is more than the sum of its parts”. Indeed, the “whole-part relationship is meaningful.” (Kurt Koffka, 1935: New York: Harcourt-Brace. p 176)
Presently, I have been creating a plethora of smaller (4″ x 6″ approx.) works with paper and panel that will eventually culminate into a larger wall installation.
The artists Berry McGee and Vincent Van Gogh show this “whole/sum /part” relationship in the two drawings below.
