Rune is a graphite and collage drawing with acrylic wash measuring 49″H x 35 1/2″W, 2014.

Through the observation of the figure in time, simple gestures suggest possibility.  Scale and placement entice the viewer to enter this world.  Working from my own history, the people I love become an avenue for entering the picture plane.  This girls’ proximity to you builds narrative through the limited color choices, the tactility of material, and her quietly observant gaze.

Rune: mystery, magic [Finnish runo, of Germanic origin; akin to Old Norse rūn] a :  a Finnish or Old Norse poem, b : poem, song.
