ideas, then sketches

Part of this creative process is the formulation of ideas into the two dimension, into sketches. Here are some casual i-phone photos of a few sketchbook pages from the ongoing series: presage.

It is intriguing to me how interested people are in the sketchbooks. During a few exhibitions and almost every time I’ve opened my studio, I’ve watched people enter into the pages and sometimes get a little lost in there. Minutes, and occasionally hours go by. I believe that this little lead in to the process allows the viewer further understanding (or confusion, just depending)and hopefully, further interest in the finished pieces. Perhaps it is somewhat like venturing back stage at a theatre production; even while light is shed on the mystery, there remains great aspects of engagement.

So, here are some ‘lead ins’…
