Art in America

In each of the nine charcoal drawings on toned paper an incomplete grid is skewed slightly, thus suggesting space. The lines are aggressively drawn, some to the point that they gouge the paper. There are also areas of erasure, revealing some evidence of process. Finally, in all of the drawings the artist poured a water-color wash over the finished grid, the effect being to loosen particles of charcoal and to undermine the grid to some extent by introducing chance into the process.
