Abstract: I am concerned with line and shape. All of my prints and drawings are landscapes. Figures appear in several, but when this happens the figures as much a part of the earth as are the rocks and soil. It is the universal state of metamorphosis that interests me, the sense of contradiction. What is very old is becoming part of the new born. There is a constant in-between. The building up of earth layers results from the deterioration of objects animate and inanimate. Everything is being taken from end is receiving. It pleases me that Nature is always the master of man. What I draw is a notation of a trip of the eye and the mind. There is the very near, the very far, the ability of the eye and the mine to jump from one to the other, and at last to focus on an in-between which is a personal place, the unique location of each person's thoughts. And even this location is not stationary. The eroded bank or piece of stone I ponder today will not lead me to the same place tomorrow.
