Some of my most recent works explore mark-making through ‘glyphs’—ancient forms of writing that whose meanings remain mysteries. I translate the unique character of ancient human ‘signs’ through scratches, scribbles, or tracks deeply rooted in my soma and psyche.
This piece was the result of creating a problem to solve, rather than problem-solving. i created random tracks and marks on paper by covering it with contact paper, applying pressure with various tools, then removing the contact paper to leave an invisible sticky residue. Next I rubbed charcoal powder over the surface to create a network of unpredictable marks. Using a variety of media, I imposed aesthetic order on random chaos.
