charcoal + pencil on paper, 22.5″ x 22″, 2010
About this piece:
I think of an explosion of broken ice when I see this piece. The angular, chipped and broken charcoal pieces were the real reason this composition looks the way it does. I would intuitively roll and scratch the paper to see what would happen, and then I would go back into it to amplify happy accidents, or erase unmemorable ones- over and over, until here we are.
