Talkative is a three-decade-long visual commentary on my surroundings. Each drawing incites another, like the division of cells. Abstract shapes, colors, representational objects, symbols, and structures speak to the profusion of images that bombard our visual sense every day. The eye that searches compulsively, moving between many possible relationships or narratives, replicates my creative process. I want to revive the playful pleasure of looking, pleasure anchored in the ability to take the time to look.
