In January I began painting about drawing. It makes sense to address drawing through paint. My intention wasn't to be descriptive or prescriptive--that's a whole other project. When I say paint 'about' drawing, I am literally looking away from technique or the 'how to'. There is much of the most reductive instruction about plaster casting your way to a solid, polished Drawing online.
I am interested in the thing itself, the drawn line that extends backward in time connecting us through our hands with the first people to mark a cave wall and forward pushing a pixel line through a screen into our imagination. Drawing is one of our most powerful forms of communication and the least understood.
I don't just believe everyone can draw, I believe everyone SHOULD draw.
