This series of three drawings emerged from a search for an authentic drawing experience with no attachment to a specific end result. I created the drawings on the floor, from a kneeling position in the center of the canvas, with a ballpoint pen in each hand. Repetitive physical movement, like an exercise, expresses a recording of time on the canvas through drawing. I am interested in how the act of creating the drawings became meditative, and how my human figure is represented by the marks made through a physical range of motion.
