Shadow Talk

Solo Exhibition of Ink Drawings and Collages
Artifact Gallery, New York
April 04 to April 23, 2018

These works, done over a three year period from 2014 to 2016, were made in a totally spontaneous manner, at least to start. The pure drawings were done in one go; they have to be. The ones where I started combining them together into a form of collage, called for more deliberation. The moving principle is ‘automatism’ in the Surrealist sense of the word, not working from a pre-defined goal or model, but consulting the sub-conscious mind directly and letting the shapes and splatters make forms almost by themselves.
