My current body of work presents large and meticulously detailed photo-suggestive graphite on Mylar drawings that focus as much attention on the imperfections of an object as the object itself. If my subject is the human form, an old western saddle, or a grouping of vegetables in still life, every fold, flaw, blemish, and scar are replicated with extraordinary attention. The cracks and crevices that make up my subjects are as important to me as the whole, for it’s the deviations in all things that contain their history and make them unique. My intense inspection and presentations are done to afford the viewer an opportunity to stop and notice life’s imperfections as hidden stories. I see them as beautiful.
