mixed -media drawing on paper 11"x 11"
The Spin-Off drawing group grew out of early artworks, wherein odd figurative creatures confront other beings (also odd), sizing them up – as dogs do. The "meeting" might be like one of us coming up against a frightening stranger whose motives we cannot fathom. Because my process flips between painting, drawing, and sculpture, in this series I wanted my curious creatures to meet my abstract sculptures, so I could record the encounter. The protagonists explore the sculptures much the way kids explore an abandoned houses.
