This series of works On Paper considers the relationships between mark making and memory. Drawn from echoes of the past, mountain views begin to disappear on the page in various stages of abstraction. Here, we are being asked to consider transitional spaces: what erodes when we move forward; what is accurate when contemplating antecedent places and events? Formal transitions of how thought becomes line, and how line becomes form also align with these studio created and referenced images.
“Disappearing Mountainscapes” act too as reminders of how we undergo change/ experience change in our environment, just as we are changed from/changed in the retelling of the past. Titles cite dates, each suggesting specificity of the past, and are in fact important dates to the artist indicating when the predictable was marked with a mountain of a meeting or event. When exhibited together, these large-scale, half formed drawings begin to oscillate from the singular landscape towards installation and hyper-vistas.
