Figurative Prototype

Brief Explanation

This series of drawings is an attempt to explore and question the definitions and qualities of the ideal figurative form. Ideal form refers to the highest expression of aesthetic value derived from the human form. The question is what appearance is the sample, or template, that the figurative form strives towards?


About Reality and Orders of Magnitude


Brief Explanation

Many of my drawings and drawings series investigate ideas and concepts about the organization of reality on levels beyond what we can perceive. There are two main areas of investigation: One - images that present a landscape of an unknowable scale of reality. Two - a representation of a moment of change, or a transition event, on a distant scale larger or smaller than our own world.

Consideration of this topic is rewarding aesthetically because it forces the viewer to ponder rich philosophical issues that might not otherwise arise. It also forces contemplation of the depth and uncertainty of knowledge and existence.
