(Étude Op 1, No. 1-4)
Graphite on Paper
The Etude Op.1, No. 1-4 is the latest series in an artistic inquiry into synesthetic, improvisational form.
Each No. in Opus 1 is a meditation on sound, the experience of music, impulses and ruminations of a personal nature, captured on a tactile canvas.
Created with graphite on paper, Etude Op. 1 began as a series of deliberately bare drawings, exploring a way of seeing, interpreting, reinterpreting, experiencing, and contextualizing my immediate personal, physical, and auditory experience. Etude Op. 1, and my drawing to date, embraces the play between control and improvisation, intricate yet fluid gestures, balance and chaos.
