Holding the Universe in my Arms

Approx. 40" x 48"

Oil Pastel and Acrylic on Paper


One of the methods I particularly loved around 2000 was floor drawing. I would tape paper down to the floor, and just get aggressive on it. The theory was that if it was on the floor, it was treated accordingly. You walk on a floor, so if the paper was on the floor, it was part of the floor and was to be walked on if need be until it was removed from the floor. To an outsider it must have looked like a god-awful mess, but to me it was all work in progress. The floor drawings often went along with a specific piece of music (footnoted on the work if relevant) but I don't believe this one was about a specific piece of music.
