Looking at early drawings, many of which are small, around 8 1/2 x 11 inches, working mostly with ink on tracing and vellum paper, and a variety of other found paper. I had no idea what I was doing, in the conventional sense of a drawing, because I was no longer drawing from something could clearly see in front me, nor an image in my mind. I didn’t know where the drawing was going, and in some instances, I was tracing an unconscous thought pattern. These drawings represent a starting point that did not look for an end. It would be difficult to reconnect with these types of drawings, they require a different kind of attention, suspended and not constrained by time.
