Fayum Drawing

My digital age inquiries compounded with my bare-bones mark-making  style has inspired me to draw, paint, sculpt…… and store way too many images on my cell phone.

I began my “Fayum” series in 2010  (Fayum Archive) and it still amazes me how many individuals are posted (and continually added to) the unidentified John and Jane Doe databases (postmortem). As long as they keep posting,, I’ll keep drawing….

Here is an installation shot of my drawings that were in a group show called Things Fall Apart.
