about drawings

my primary medium is works on paper: mostly drawings, and some prints. i have made most of my drawings on paper of course, but also many on films, glass, steel, copper plates, linoleum, wood, sand, and even on air and water. i endeavor to explore all the possibilities of drawing, from the largest, most detailed pieces to the smallest, simplest sketches and cartoons; drawings to keep, and ephemeral drawings; quiet drawings and musical drawings, high tech drawings and organic ones...

i have always liked drawings: prehistoric drawings such as lascaux, drawings on greek vases, song sumi drawings(fan k'uan), renaissance drawings (dürer, michelangelo, tiepolo, canaletto), baroque drawings (lorrain, robert, fragonard, ingres, goya), and then modern and contemporary drawings (michaux, wols, morellet, pollock, kandinsky, bill, el hanani, kline, marden, martin, horwitz, chillida, motherwell).

people want to find a "meaning" in everything and everyone. that is the disease of our age, an age that is anything but practical but believes itself to be more practical than any other age.
