From the artist's statement: I am interested in collective forces, many small, similar, often silent parts working together slowly but surely towards the shaping of something, whether it is the landscape, people, or ideas that are being shaped. Working with the landscape I did a number of large scale (52x36ö) ink drawings of land and cityscapes in and around Kansas City. Drawn on site in pencil and inked later, these pieces were an attempt to pull raw information from the landscape, allowing the site chosen to reveal its collective forces organically. Though these pieces are immense in size, it is important that even the smallest piece, such as the 5x5; intaglio print Campus Romance, have the same sense of immensity or of something epic or massive happening.
