Iconic Structures Series
Drawing, Sumi Ink, Rives BFK Paper
22 1/8" x 30" framed
In the Iconic Structures series I use the repetition of a single house - emblematic in some cases, drawn in specific detail in others - to create designs based upon a personal organizational structure. By using repetition in this way, I am able to create work which has a multifaceted sense of meaning and perception, creating playful associations within a map’s rigid lines, changing dramatically whether viewed up close or from a distance. Inspired by the controlled, methodical consistency of Minimalism, this body of work nonetheless proclaims that more is more, as the simple icon of a single house grows into a village, a sloping valley, a cluster of bees, a hole in the ground, a tall mountain, or a roaring gust of wind.
