series of images was made in NYC in 1978-79 when I started teaching
at the New York Studio School.
These drawings are as honest an attempt at dealing with "the appearing as it appears" as I had ever done up to that point in time.
This work represents a pivotal moment in my work, Nothing was ever the same after this period of work. In fact, this is about the time when I began to see that, no matter what it was I was trying to do, the "same" structure would always appear, whether I wanted "it" or not. Much of my work since has been a progressive acceptance of that fact, "going with the flow"as it were.
view these images in the order in which they were made, the last image
is an actual photo of the motif all the drawings were made from/with
(no peeking ahead please!;-).
There will be access to all of 29 images as thumbnails when you reach the 29th page (there is also a QuickTime movie, done in Studio Artist by morphing all the following images, movie that is available at the bottom of the forthcoming thumbnails page).
