Closely related to my three-dimensional work, these drawings are introspective rather than preparatory.
They arise from studies of natural and built environments reduced to configurations of structure and surfaces.
In my three-dimensional work I employ a logic governed as much by rational geometry as by physical encounters that depend on gravity and the terrain. Similarly, in my drawings I rely on a mixture of planning and incident. Somewhere at this juncture formal elements, such as lines and planes, seem to touch upon a physicality
that feels almost human.
