Papier 2017


Although the wall drawing remains on view at the gallery, Studio 21 is taking my drawings on paper to Papier 17 in Montreal. When I describe the feeling of drawing, I find myself rubbing my fingers together as if I’m feeling the texture of the paper. How wonderful to think of a whole art fair dedicated to the material. Though not exactly paper, mylar is so buttery to draw on I love it as much as I loved the Stonehenge I was committed to for a decade. I can’t really let it go. Drawing on the wall however is somewhere between. The charcoal is easily pushed around on the smooth surface, and with a matte paint, it feels just like drawing on a thick rag page.
