“The ceramic vase is 5 years young, a complete improvisation, based on the seed crystal of a female model saying that this session was her last, that she would be flying away. Thus I drew the flying female figure thema. This vase is from an exhibition called Deep In Shallow Thoughts.
“The Bucketus Ignobilus is from an exhibition last autumn called Long Winded Short Stories, and the drawing is to be a plate in an upcoming book of drawings. The image is a double self-portrait actually lifted from the back side of Aspiration vase, so it is not an improvisation, but rather a premeditated artwork. In both works, please note that NO LINE TOUCHES ANOTHER. This is something I realized from years of staring at various schools of Asian 2-D arts.”
