In my drawings, I use the act of moving a graphite pencil on paper to transform inchoate thought into visible form.

Although at first glance these simple, graphite-on-paper drawings might look like stones, they could just as well bring to mind organic matter (a peach, or a pea) or body parts (a cranium). They float in empty space. They have no fixed orientation, no fixed light source, no fixed scale. They could be collosal asteroids floating in distant weightless atmosphere, or tiny particles many times magnified. They are specific images of three-dimensional forms on flat paper, yet they are unnameable. It is up to the viewer to decide -- or leave undecided -- what these forms are.
