Description

“Drawing is a way of thinking…it’s very direct, but not specific. My real thinking is visual…Making a series of visual connections is a particular idea, there’s no beginning or end. I start out, with a formal structure - couplets or whatever. Then I take it from there. It’s about joining things up, making relationships, but at the same time letting the drawing itself do the work. One of the things about [the Cold Mountain work] is, it’s more directly involved in the act of drawing and the automatic. [The works] start out with observation and then automatic reaction, and then back off, so there’s layering of different ways of drawing…”
Brice Marden in conversation with Pat Steir in Exh. Cat., New York, Matthew Marks Gallery, Brice Marden: Recent Drawings and Etchings, 1991, n.p.
