Pearls on a String...the first in a series
Pearls on a String, no.1
Here's the first in a series of new intuitive and meditative drawings underway...everything seems to come together here...my interest in language and text plays itself out in the lower portion with the layers of handwritten quasi-language...it just nice to feel your hand move across the page in the act of writing/drawing...and in some ways, aren't they one and the same? Pearls on a string is a metaphor for words and language, but also for something much larger...aren't we all particular pearls on a string...of history, of the continuum of time...links in a chain in a way...that goes on indefinitely.
The little collaged pieces are drawings done in India ink on dry used teabags, which are then dipped in beeswax. I fell in love once I stumbled onto this....there are more in the works.
Enjoy and love to have questions, comments and conversation!
