Natural Drawing

Natural Drawing embodies a new approach to the questions of access and balance (between individuality and uniformity) in nature. Instead of trying to access a place beyond humanity objectively, in this work I attempt to approach nature by creating and exploring the circumstances through which it 'creates' independently of human gesture/intention. I construct devices that enable nature to create drawings, paintings, and sculpture autonomously through 'natural forces' (i.e. wind, tide, etc.). The new work embodies a non-objective approach that employs and expands the language of painting though video, sculpture, performance and site-specific work. The challenges of this 'new' realism raise fundamental questions of causality and experience, both within the context of art and within perception itself.
