Three recent drawings: a sort of abstract surrealism and decorative illustration combination.

Posting resumed after a hiatus recouping from a broken fibula leg bone in Cape Cod, in both ways not all that bad.

Drawing with collage from 1987 sketch book. A narrative that doesn’t explain itself, while it seems to have one vague possibly if set in early 19th century literature. I was an admirer of Herman Melville’s “Pierre; or, The Ambiguities” for it’s shear gothic weirdness, which it was meant to be a sent up of, but ended up out doing it. I’d like to say I had that in mind, but I didn’t. I just liked cutting old stuff up and rearranging it.

Keeping the original from which the collage cut outs were taken and used a year later in a 1988 Detroit Focus Gallery flyer as part of an attempt at a visual representation of the flux and flow of global exchange Capitalism, time management, surveillance, and a commodity culture in art, both commercial and fine. The exhibition, which included myself, was on graphic design, advertising design, industrial design, and commercial illustration, and of course, not as a critique, but as an elevation into what might also be a form of art, suitable for a gallery. Ironically, none of it was for sale.

A drawing made with collaged parts of drawings and a collage with some drawing added, notwithstanding some stylistic distance between them.

Is this jest a drawing off on an April fool’s errand ?

Today: a careful drawing carefully constructed.

1984. Consecutive drawings from a 89 page sketch book project for a CCS history class, “American Art: 1900-1945.” Two stylistic interpretations from my reimagining the Streamlining and Art Deco period. Somehow they both ended up as scary faces, which might have had something to do with the 1930s rise of Fascism, that is if I can actually remember what I had in mind after 35 years ?

Recent: Untitled collage w/ drawing, 9 x 10 inches. Started with nothing in mind and in the end nothing came to mind, although the possibility is always there. There are lots of cues, so other, more imaginative minds might fare better.

Again two similar drawings, this time dark, one possibly funny, if not scary, the other framed. 2019

Two similar drawings, divided into three-fold parts, light and bright in color and technique, if not content. 2019
