With this ongoing series I draw the figures of unidentified John and Jane Does. Referencing missing people databases I translate the mass index of internet content into single in-depth portraits. Their faces are drawn on old manila envelopes that could easily be filed, forgotten, or discarded.
The marks continuously unfold with apparent and hidden figures and mementos, layered and embedded throughout the composition.
Landscapes, figures, debris and personal objects are present in the drawing. The fragmentized marks and symbols provide some sense of narrative to linger on the surface, even if it is simply about the materiality of the mark and impermanence of the object and subject.
