Unanswered Questions VII

‘Unanswered Questions’ is a series of ink drawings on paper. The drawings are an investigation into the nature of light and shadow. These images are begun by drawing with reflected sunlight onto my studio wall.  The gesture of my body creates shadows onto which strong morning sunlight can be reflected and manipulated. The character of these sunlight drawings is ephemeral and fleeting, and the nature of light and shadow on a wall is two dimensional.  Working with ink on paper allows me to re-imagine the light and shadow unconstrained by time. It also allows me to suggest a three dimensional space in which light becomes a fragile structure that glows, moves, and saturates the surrounding air.
