The works are a collection of improvisational drawings and paintings sounding the immateriality/paradox of weight and light. 

There are over fifty pieces in The Chandelier Drawings 2006 collection.

The measurements span from 42″ H to 23″ H and width is in proportion to the above images. The top image is 40″H x 26″W.

The works are created with iridescent silver or graphite or white pencil on various backgrounds: heavyweight black or light cream or grey paper or on board with layers of deep charcoal black or white paint.  Erasures. Pentimento. Sound / voices in the distance moving forward to now. Echoes. Shimmering. Calling out light in the dark night.

Visual poems resonating and in sympathy with the shape of a heart; a spine; a pelvis and a fleur-de-lis. Hovering. Floating. Transmuting. Apparitions. Dreams. Evanescence.

Elegance.
Enchantment.

Romantic
epiphanies.

Simple. 

Improvisational.
