Description

"Epitaph", 2015, Charcoal on cut paper, appx. 72" x 80" in grid. These works are best seen in detail, since they are actually charcoal drawings which have been cut - the architectural forms which appear in black, are actually cut out of the physical drawing, and the empty space shows through to a black layer several inches behind the drawing. Shadow plays an important role in the display of this work. The architectural forms become a somber stamp, left by humanity on the natural environment. Irreparable and jarring, they prevent us from seeing the full picture.
