Previous Shows: 2012: Obsessive Aesthetics: Lindsey Landfried
I write a single mark, a connecting loop, from left to right on the page, recording lines of imagined text. Using traditional writing materials, ink and graphite on paper, I use this single mark, a loop, to create a visual incident of patterns, networks, and color fields that suggest maps, landscapes, weaving, sediment, and bodies of text. In the work, the loop is also connected to rhythm, sound, and visual noise. The resulting drawings are both very small and wall scale, referencing machines that draw, such as seismographs, echocardiographs, printers, and computers. The shift in scale between the mark and the accumulation of marks disorients the recipient, creating for the viewer a disconcerting optical tension.
