I am trying to figure how to draw without drawing. What I mean by that is; how to put a material in my hand and create an image not strictly from my own choices and conscious. I want to make images that come from a surface, color or material that one already encounters in day-to-day life and has its own stimulus and associations. I want to take this commonplace thing and integrate it into an artwork so that this new object creates new stimulation that flows back into the viewer’s experience with it.  I feel that an artwork is strongest when the experience of viewing it is not solely related to the autonomy of its creator’s hand.
