56" x 56" graphite on paper 2018
This drawing evolved over the course of a year. I bought a plant, drew it, bought another plant and repeated the process. Found-objects like bike chains and Porsche parts are hidden in the foliage along with notes and quotes from a dozen or so audiobooks listened to while drawing. Didion, Murakami, Carver, Vandermeer, Ng; the books were reflections on the growth of unwilling heroes. As the drawing grew the notes were covered up, though bits can be seen peeking through.
