Three representational drawings
A toast to the fruit of knowledge, 25.5”X19” May 2008, Pastel, The problem was to design a self-portrait involving a vegetable and utilize complimentary colour harmonies. I attempted to leave implications to the fruit of knowledge.
What did one telephone say to another?, 22”X30”, Dec 2007, Charcoal, This is a Koan I developed. A Koan is a question such as what is the sound of one hand clapping? The idea developed as a part of interdependent arising. This is a term possibly best described in scientific terms, with the universe exploding from one point and expanding into infinity becoming more and more distorted, on the molecular level everything is a chemical reaction of another chemical reaction, down to the synapses of the human brain and the movement in your hand. This process is also very similar to the child's game of telephone.
The Hallucinogenic Experience Called Life; A Self Portrait, 8’’X10’’, Dec 2007, This is a funny karmic situation of the ego that arises from the idea that life; described as a set of senses and experiences both real and unreal, is a self portrait. With this piece I really wanted to break borders and reach out of the box.
