- ink on paper (1999-present)
"Influenced by Chinese calligraphy of
the 19th century, I am interested in the use of language and symbols as
something 'other' than what they are known for. The gesture of a line
creating a pictorial language through my own figures and forms to
catalogue the human condition.
It is the process of exploring, the tension between understanding and
not understanding that motivates my work. Staying present. Like
language itself, each image is it's own source of energy, yet strung
together forms a movement. With 'Scroll Drawings' each drawing is a
microcosm of life, unfolding from moment to moment, and then the story
In trying to make sense of my own response to life, I draw these images
sequentially, never understanding what manifests until the marks are
made." Lauren Cherry
