Hard to isolate because it's everywhere in my work but a few projects are particularly text strong. Lately I've been working on some small books. Maybe "strong" isn't the right word. Perhaps it's "cohesive"; text embues the work with a particularly linear narrativity.

things happen for a reason

if you were going to make a book about dying trees (2018) evolved from a 2017 solo show titled images from a future without proper care. The drawings were made by taping paper against the bark of trees and rubbing the paper with graphite. Some of the trees were dead or dying. The method of fabrication is a reference to the practice of making grave rubbings. The work is a response to the effects of climate change and also an examination of what constitutes a drawing (as opposed to a photograph, for instance). The images document a set of material inquiries into the nature of mark making and reproduction.
