Burn Drawings

Creation is an alchemical action. Through combining various elements, new forms are manifest. In this series of drawings, I chose to mix the Classical Elements - Earth, Air, Fire, Water - to create a progressive drawing. My mark making was guided by the intentional mimicry of patterns found in nature - cellular circles, spider webs, crystalline grids, coral reefs, etc. These pieces were created as progressive drawings between 2014 and 2016.
