Drift
In the corner of the gallery, bed sheets drawn in pencil pile up as if a landscape of boulders, their illusion of mass and movement echoing the waves of the Mississippi river hitting the bluffs that the museum is situated upon seven stories below. This site-specific drawing continues my examination of the immensity of life within the most intimate of details: the constant ebb and flow of our existence. Here, I am playing with a sense of wonder that comes through dramatic shifts in scale, as well as a blurring of interior and exterior space.
