Misc. works on paper 2005 - 2007


2005 - 2007 brought about a huge group of
drawings of a larger scale that are somewhat
related to the Holbein drawings but also a
departure. They represent for me transitional
drawings, more grounded, and with a less
symbological approach. I identify in their
iconology, (now at least),  some of the
underlying structures of my current work. At
the time I was looking at and reading everyting.
Math, Science, Music, architecture, but likely a
more focused direction in structure, which
eventually lead me to geometry and studying
the icosahedron in depth.
