Word Props

Through drawing, painting, and collage, a more economic approach to materials has recently generated new work best described as 'word props' where the starting point of each formal outcome is a measured space according to the width of the digits on my right hand. This approach has led to an accidental abstraction; one that pursues poetic equivalence between the interpretive power of the printed word (both its loaded connotation and as an abstract sign) and the power of drawing as an approximate measure of perception. These works are often realised in the form of genealogically repeating sequences, or social chains to consider the psychological effects and optical properties between reading and seeing, which sometimes enter the world as small artists publications.
