Points In Space (2019)
- series of drawings
- pigmented ink on paper
- 6 x 9 inches
These images probe differences between the picture plane and the experience of seeing spatially. I begin each drawing on a bus or a train traveling from point to point. I use the motif of the window as a passageway into another memory or adjacent experience. The scenes seen through these apertures are drawn from photographs or 3D scans.
Each drawing is rendered in a pointillist fashion using a limited range of pigmented ink to develop surface and depth through tone, color, proximity and density of dots. Clusters of points break up the continuous tone of the scene to produce images that are dreamlike and ephemeral.
