Projects > Process + Practice

Process and practice.
How do these pieces relate. The need to work. Fill in gaps and spaces.
Drawing as response. The physical and mental meet.

These works are smaller works on paper, handmade paper, books, and small sculptures. These are often the works that are made in between the larger works. They are the kernels that lead to the large ideas. They represent the very sweetest of time in the studio when I am just figuring things out. When my imagination is running and I don't have to contend with things like gravity, like budgets, or timing.
They are the essential ideas.
