Word Drawings 2012-current

My Word Drawings are all charcoal on paper and feature short – often common – words and phrases. The letterforms are rendered in a manner that allows them to interact with one another and occupy a visual space that augments the meanings of the words they depict. Each drawing is an experiment in the fundamental relationships between the written word, the illusionistic drawing and the margins and borders they are placed within. I derive my word and phrase choices from those that strike me in everyday conversations whether it be for the sound of the word, the visible form of the written word or the associations it has.
