  • Catalogue Essay

    Given the provocative dissonance between expressive “matter” and analytical “mind,” these marks compete with the linear configurations to be the key signifying element. One imagines the artist bearing down on the pencil with earnest, concentrated focus, as if in answer to some urgent necessity. The impasto-like “weightiness” of the marks suggest that that urgent necessity might be to establish a dialogue with the early, objectlike paintings of Jasper Johns and Frank Stella, or possibly with Richard Serra’s expressively “weighty” monochrome drawings.
