Studio under quarantine, spring 2020

Lately, I've been lisening to a great deal of the solo guitar work by Bill Frisell. His single note progressions and clean, almost ethereal sound creates an abstract landscape that I find I can easily slip into. I close my eyes and draw for the duration of a song. At the end of the song and with my eyes open, I continue drawing with the immediate memory of close listening and mark making. My simple materials of graphite and paper emphasize line, texture, and tone. These materials also speak to the intimate connection between the hand and the ear, and the necessity of using what we have in the current moment.
