Sacred Space Drawing

Sacred Space Drawing

Ink, paint and charcoal on paper, 96″x64″

Sacred Space Body is the title piece of the “Sacred Space” series. It is the first of many large drawings that records the indexical mark of where a person’s body has been. The drawing is evidence of connection and intimacy between subject and artist.

Abacus

Performative drawing piece, 72″h x 110″w x 20″l, ink on adding machine paper on steel armature, 2012

Thinking about ink drawings as an artistic practice and a way of marking time, Abacus was a performative art piece created for The Brightest Party Ever for Leadership Austin at the Long Center, and then showed at Austin City Hall. Using adding machine paper and a steel armature to create a counting machine, individual ink drawings were created along the length of the paper, adding together the shapes and the time. Long strips of drawings were given to viewers as a memento of time spent and created.Abacus, view 1 Abacus, view 4 Abacus, view 4

Oil, charcoal and graphite on plasma cut steel, set of 4, 62″x8″x8″ each

Four steel cylinders with surface drawings using a plasma cutter, pencil and brush, stand at human height, requiring the entirety of the body to move along the pipe, as if dancing. The pipes themselves are the 3-dimensional steel canvas for the surface drawing in pencil, chalk and oil glazes.

On the KLRU Video about Generous Art, you can watch me work on these pieces.
