Through an intuitive process of accumulating and scattering lines, digressions in narratives, and often-abandoning subjects, drawing is a dynamic and fundamental part of myself. A part that is both embedded in history and continually changing. I work in the same way that an author revises text, constructs sentences, edits words, deconstructs sentences, and rubs out ideas. The objective of correction fascinates me.
