Whirl #3 from Set #9

I recently received a set of my drawings that had been in storage since 1999 from a show at the Joseph Nease Gallery in Kansas City. The show, titled WHIRL, consisted of a number of kinetic pieces installed in the main gallery. Around 20 of these drawings, originally titled OUTLINE FORMS, were installed in the back room of the gallery.

Whirl Set #8

I spent a lot of time with these drawings when I got them back in my studio this winter. I started composing arrangements, and, as a result, I have decided to group these drawings into separate portfolios. These groupings have been a way to re-enter the drawings, and as is often the case in my studio with constructed objects, an opportunity to “re-find” them and place them in a new context. Each of the drawings are 17″ by 22″ with a vertical orientation and were produced with plotter pens on vellum. The individual portfolios consist of either 3 or 4 drawings each.

A complete set of the available portfolios can be seen here.
