hill and hole
I call this series “Hill & Hole.” Each drawing or diptych in this ongoing series is made by brush and India ink on Nepal paper. The paper is made from natural fibers and is archival, light weight, and strong; it has an almost skin-like character. I see these macro-micro landscapes as homages to the forms of Suzan Frecon and Agnes Martin. The dichotomy of hill/hole provides a conceptual structure through which I can investigate the dualities of minimalism/realism and abstraction/representation. They are simple geometries while simultaneously being intricately drawn invented landscapes. They are object and they are space.
