Artist’s Statement Over the last few years drawing has become my primary activity. The drawings that make up this exhibition are not sketches or preparatory studies. They are seen as fully realized works and are intended to stand alone as such. The directness and the rapid change that drawing allows answers my current expressive needs more clearly than painting. All the drawings are worked from life over long periods. There are three sources behind the work. One is nature, or the motif; either the figure or the landscape. The second is the history of art, the reservoir of images from the past that I love and have become part of my consciousness. The third is the inner life of the imagination.
