printmaking artist's statement

I have always liked rocks. I liked rocks even before I liked drawing. These drawings are about rocks. More simply, these drawings are about the formal relationship of one line to another. Rocks embody that most basic formal pairing. Rocks have bleached sides and dark. Broken edges and whole. Weathered and earthen. The ways to describe a rock with line are endless, and so I draw rocks, because I like making lines.
