Drawing what we see connects us with your environment. We observe and discover more. And we incorporate those moments within ourselves. Drawings recall memories of our lives in a way no photograph ever can.
And strangely enough, even when you try to “objectively” depict what you see, every drawing reveals something about yourself.
I made a habit out of sending drawings to friends as postcards. An important part of this idea is the loss of control once those pictures disappear into a mailbox. They might be discarded by the recipients or framed and integrated into their homes. They might get damaged or even lost on their journey. I keep nothing but a quick digital snapshot on this website.
