'Floated' within the framing, the forms of these open linear works cast small shadows beneath the material.
Light plays a part in the changing dynamic of the shadows and the forms within each drawing.
The works in ink are painted by hand using a brush, or with other implements, onto an archival, transparent materials; film, duralar or acetate.
Acetate is a material made of wood cellulose fibers. Its use in these works classify the work as a 'work on paper' for museum purposes. Duralar is
an acid free material that is half acetate and half plastic. Re-purposed Xerox film transparencies are acid free and made to be receptive to ink.
