Bird feeders L
Under the trees – birds come and go. A layered colored drawing for contemplative viewing.
I work and draw in a direct manner, and match my artwork to a combined vision of memory, reality and dreams.
Usually, I start making a series of drawings of the same subject and then select and combine them to make a finished piece of art. I think of each of these drawings as a single pass at seeing the subject, and combined, as a perception of that subject.
These images do not deny the value of representational means, but give weight to all the perceptions in an attempt to reach a closer approximation to the experience of seeing. They are intended to be contemplated, and follow in the tradition of the earliest art – to see the world and its patterns, and to reconcile our inner and outer selves.
