Discovery continues. Today I post a drawing that is another one of my efforts to find emotional circumstance in the manufacture of three-dimensional artifice. Artifice invokes emotion; here because of the obvious lie, i.e., this 3D image is on a two-dimensional piece of white paper. This not a piece of sculpture in 3D space. Pencil marks on flat paper are able to create emotional reality; simple technique can surprise with emotional complexity. This drawing's emotional complexity surprises me because many of my previous drawings have more animated marks, more complex forms, yet they fail my emotional profundity test. More often than not, forms and marks clutter drawings yet fall short in emotional meaning. This speaks to the magic that is full realization; achieving profundity is not painless, not unambiguous, is complicated.
