The distinct world of abstract drawing is a special challenge. The thrill is to locate, discover, conjure up a realm in which each drawing thrives. Pencil marks, quick turns of phrase, exuberant shape, scratches, flux. I focus on rhythmicizing the picture surface, employing dashes, slashes, and exudations of charged color, color as an energy source. I will introduce nimble diagrams, organicals, and non-specific gizmos, fleshly made. The exuding color and tumbles and gizmos are key to reaching a rhythmic whole which is undulating, animated.
