This exhibition of drawings explores the subject of being grounded. I explore, by examining the ground of ordinary objects, that which allows us to move outside the ordinary. I focus on visualizing weight, repetition and pattern, and work to capture something special in the subject matter. I try to bind the ordinary to the extraordinary without losing ground, without forgetting what grounds us everyday. It was out of facing this challenge I came to understand that in humble and simple objects we can realize something mysterious, something larger, perhaps even something heroic.
