I’ve always thought of the body as poetry, and in my recent work I’ve wanted to directly and intentionally tie my poetry and drawing together. With every piece, I’ve written a poem to precede the drawing so as to cultivate roots to the idea or feeling I hope the piece to suggest. In my drawing I wish to evoke the feeling of what it’s like to read poetry in the viewing drawings. Thinking of the human body as a stanza or line of a poem I wish to promote pacing qualities in composition like one reads a poem. Including elements like repetition, rhythm, spacing qualities, aspects of reading and writing poetry combined with the act of drawing.
