Made with a definitive hand, the vertical lines of these drawings speak firmly and clearly in high contrast black and white ink.  Striations on the page are like the recorded grooves of distant conversations, marking the reverberating waves of memory.  We feel a sense of discovery in this body of work, as abstracted revelations of old truths are unearthed and played back like half-forgotten music that wafts through the air and then disappears, air again becoming simply air.  Fine gold lines are woven into some of the drawings, while other incorporate areas of rich blue, red and green gouache.  These works recognizably speak to Asian traditions such as Po’ Mo (Chinese ink splash painting) and Japanese Sumi-e, as well as to Process Art and the Bauhaus.
