Stolen Lines/2012

Stolen Lines is a group of works primarily from 2012. Drawing with silver point as my initial mark was very important to this series. I sought delicacy, open spaces and a feeling of infinite possibility. These works evolved slowly while listening to a variety of music or responses to poems or stories. I found it interesting while making the work how much music triggered memory of early childhood books and poems read aloud. Maybe it’s in the rhythm. All of the titles evolve out of phrases from these, whether directly quoted or assimilated.
