Works on Paper

In the “Glue Drawings” Series, Elmer’s School Glue acts simultaneously as a pencil or brush and as a resist medium between the paper and charcoal and graphite, ink, or glitter. The color and viscosity of the glue creates a bas-relief surface that appears to let light through, and is similar to the color of the edge of the glass seen in my sculptural work with glass.

 

Glue Drawings have become a meeting place between two and three-dimensional works for me. The process involved is spontaneous and unselfconscious &endash; a vehicle for accessing a more intuitive aspect of creating than my work in kinetic sculpture, where components are precisely constructed.
