The charm of new technologies has provided an entry to explore immediate conversations and questions that often connect me with my envy of poet's calm ability to harvest meaning. Hopefully the work is more "art about life" than "art about art" but ultimately it seems beyond that my work like that of many other artists is based on misunderstanding as much as insight. For the exhibition at SRISA Gallery I have a variety on very recent works that are embedded in layered processes. Conceptually, each of the pieces in the exhibition are drawings. However they have been processed and manipulated to have an archival relationship with their origin. Included are what now appear as tapestries, small prints, and letterpress pieces.

Hayter and Krishna Reddy at “Atelier 17” in Paris. After a workshop with artist Garner Tullis he began his own self-directed apprenticeship to study the history and techniques of hand-papermaking.
