Wander and Explore
My mazes take cues from the physical world I observe and are influenced by the work of artists I admire. My early fascination with M. C. Escher’s artwork inspired me to include surreal architecture and perspective based illusions, and later, years of drafting class, working construction, and eventually drawing building plans helped inform my interest in the simple beauty of buildings and structures. In art school I fell in love with the work of painters such as Richard Diebenkorn, Susan Rothenberg, and Keith Haring, and found inspiration in the line and color of comics artists such as Frank Miller, Bill Sienkiewicz, and the Hernandez brothers. I was hooked on sculpture and the way it defines space when Richard Serra installed one of his massive steel artworks near my art school in 1984. I also did a great deal of woodblock printing at this time, appreciating the limited palette, flat colors, and strong shapes. My color choices here also reflect my love of the animated films of Hayao Miyazaki, Pixar, and Disney’s new golden age.
My mazes are always hand drawn, first loosely sketched out to find the nature and life in them, without real perspective other than a hint here and there. The drawings are doodles that spread across the page, and the maze is the structure they cling to. Living in various cities (Baltimore, Pittsburgh, New York) I took to observing the way buildings fit together, and so I see the mazes growing like a city grows. There is some planning, but also delight in the irregular and unusual spaces that I discover in their creation.
