About this drawing:

My working method is more cyclical than linear. I make a piece, and then I take it apart and reinvent it. I hide things in boxes for months or years. I cut pieces-into-pieces only to discover that they need to be sewn back together. I forget about things I’ve started, then later return my attention to them.

Each piece I make has a history because of this cyclical working method. This piece is part of a series of 14 drawings that have had an interesting evolution. I started them in fall of 2004, (I believe...). They have been written on and drawn on multiple times, and then rinsed out, almost removing my inky marks. They have been stained with tea. They have been torn into smaller drawings. I have considered them as one large piece. I have considered binding them into a book.

Recently I rediscovered them, and have now considered them one-at-a-time, as individuals. I have responded to the faint snippets of text that remain. I have made decisions.

And now I am letting them go. Please consider giving this piece a good home.

4 1\/2” x 7 1\/2”. Lana Gravure paper.
