Connecting / The Fish, 1983


The Connecting drawings reach out from the center to the far corners of the paper, the ground, the earth.

They create a charged space devoted to the four-ness of things: the Elements, the Seasons, and the Directions.

They also span across the paper ~ speaking to the two-ness of things: day/night, east/west, silence/sound.

Constructed with underlying layers of paper and incised with apertures, they have an arresting, energizing presence.


Medium: Color pencil, India ink, pastel, on charcoal paper with underlaid papers
