Inspiration for these compositions arise out of the personal as well as literature, music, film and other media. The drawings are studies of human form, "life" drawing, ingrained in the formal tradition of “art" making born out of renaissance concerns. They are created with traditional drawing materials, done in black, white and greys, usually on a mid-tone brown paper. The drawings are done without any extraneous details so as not to detract from their overall carnal force. The works are concerned with the paradoxical closeness between love, beauty, and dissolution, ugliness and general repulsion. The essence of the expression in the drawings lies in their intuitive power. They are physical drawings disciplined line manipulations disguised seemingly as uncontrolled cataclysmic gestures. The images are intentionally deformed for compositional and conceptual purposes. It is resurrection through the drawing of anguish, torment and violence that charges this work.
