May it Always Be (with Paula Jean Cowan) 2011
These drawings were made on our dining room table, during naps and after the bedtime of our then-one-and-half-year-old son. Their circular supports were traced from the lid of our pasta pot and their images are emblems of our shifting domestic circumstances. They were made through a process of “call and response”, one drawing begun, its pair a counterpoint. Their narratives are cryptic - private responses to the mundane events that structure our everyday existence. Some are joyous. Some are laments. Others are talismans of protection or remembrance. They are small gestures in an ongoing conversation between two artists who share a life.
