An ongoing element in my sculptural work is the wrapping of string, wire and rope around objects. The series of drawings are two-dimensional variations of those patterns and activities. Archetypal graphic motifs of spirals, concentric circles, scribbles and other mark-making reflect patterns and forms in nature. Considering the continuity of energy through time, perhaps these line drawings are symbolic of physical or spiritual roadmaps, navigating toward the truth of our position in the universe.
