My recent leanings as an artist have been that of truth and purity of perception. This investigation of form, verity, and accuracy has made me more aware of infinitesimal structures that are crucial to thingness.
For the past few years I have been making drawings using typewriter carbon and found photography, transcribing exacting details from the photo (via carbon) onto a substrate. The result is a ghost, devoid of any human embellishment or direct mark making. This process has caused me to draw and paint blindly, or refusing to look at the substrate while I work. Instead, my focus pinpoints every detail and form that makes the subject the subject. By eliminating my own perception of the thing, I am getting closer to its truth.
