Bear Cub Skulls

graphite on illustration board, 2014, 30"w x 40"h

Through my investigative drawings of skulls, I have come to understand that my discoveries are unconsciously about the exploration of loss; what we project is usually a piece of the self, suppressed or denied. The drawings are intimately bound through timely execution and through a quiet exasperation in a vulnerable mindset of a perceived transition of experience. These drawings are depictions of certain types of loss: loss of life, the passing of time and memory loss. They are about the exploration of space, how these enriched objects can occupy them and how people interact with these drawings through understanding (their own) essential bareness.

    Hi, I came across your drawing in the Grad Ex book and I was wondering if you are interested in me considering using your work in the OCADU drawing textbook that I’m currently working on. This textbook will be similar to the Colour and Two-Dimensional Design textbook that I wrote for the first-year students. Like the colour textbook this is a publication where the profits go back to the institution for first-year programing. Please let me know if you are interested and when I start designing the book I’ll try and include your work in to the design.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
