Catalogue Note

"The perception of drawing involves a means of perception – namely the properties used. How they're used is one of the means of perception as well as one of the modes of perception as you're working. Lately, I've been using paintstick. Anything you can project as expressive in terms of drawing – ideas, metaphors, emotions, language structures –  results from the act of doing. But the meaning of drawing is meaningless to these other meanings."
