Roommates: A Relational Self-Portrait
charcoal on paper
40 x 90 in.
My two primary interests are relationships and light. Hours of direct observation of my roommates imbue me with an intimate understanding of our relationships that I could only acquire through drawing. Charcoal on paper, by describing the travel of light across forms and acknowledging the inevitable flatness of two-dimensional work, allows a fluid interaction between drawer, subject, and materials used.
