Bonsai, pencil on paper, 11 x 14 in. each (2013)
Line drawing is a task of translation: using one set of vocabulary to replace another. For example, using density to replace weight, using the movement of your hand to replace the gesture of your object. Passing by a short pine tree in August I realized that it’s made of lines itself. The direction and the density of these lines have determined the contour, and the expression of this plant.
