Diminutives: One through Twelve

Diminutives: One through Twelve

Ink, gesso, charcoal, acrylic, local materials and collage on paper

Overall dimensions: 22 inches x 29 inches x 1 inch

I followed the hand drawn maps in my old field journals back to the crusty mineral springs and bubbling mud pots of Eastern Oregon where I captured bats as a biologist in the 1970s. In the four decades since I first saw the vast expanses of the West so much of the natural world has been diminished. From somewhere between my romantic memories of the past and my dread of an eco-apocalyptic future these landscapes emerged accidentally, discovered and cropped out of abstract fields of ink and paint on paper.
