Domes, 23”h x 28” w, ink and brush

Domes is a series of drawings under the Genius Loci umbrella and consists of a suite of brush and ink architectural sketches of the domes of glasshouses. Beginning with a photograph of the architecture it is then rendered and translated by hand into line onto a light tissue (mitsumata, a handmade Japanese paper). The nature of the line, the choice of paper, the ink, and the puckering all work to describe these canopy like structures and the utopian poetry implicit. They suggest imaginary places and spaces floating without ground. They appear like notes or an archive of possibilities.
