Every element of the process of making a drawing has been activated in these new assemblages: diverse surfaces, varied mark-making media and method, and experiments with presentation all draw attention to the totality of what makes an image emerge from an assortment of surfaces and layers. By attempting singularities, I invite every piece to receive consideration on its own terms. Even while it becomes apparent that each one is a full participant in shared conditions of fragility, and attractiveness, not every one has been protected or presented equally. I see this work as a meditation on the complexity of how a life is composed. Weights and meanings come attached to whatever race, class, or geography a person is born into. Marks are made — the actions of agency or response taken in efforts to alter or reiterate the warp and weft of context. Narratives and values act as frames that impact the understanding of, and the relationships that are emphasized within, the final product.
