Handmark Symphony 2015-2017
My watercolor drawings investigate space, harmony, and interdependence. The use of drawing around my hand is a form of meditation as well as signature.
It is utterly ordinary to use one's hands, and at the same time, i've found myself ignoring my hands or using them unproductively. In ancient cave paintings, a mythic power exudes from handmarks made by the people who created them. This power resonates with ideas of intention, possessiveness, or determination. The abilities in my hands, power, and personal responsibility are a contemplation for me; it seems to take a long time to create and a brief moment to destroy.
