poster for Scott Pfaffman “Hook and Eye”

This event has ended.

”For me drawing is a luxurious necessity. A scale with which to measure and clarify, (and sometimes render meaningless) the ways of seeing. I experience this variety as a kind of repetition, as portraits of the moments when eye, mind, hand are folded, reshaped into shapes and assembled meanings, gestures that mirror the unseen with the seen. A drawing should be consequential and shed that energy continuously; stasis, mass, space, time, are the escapements which connect energy and vision.Drawings are maps, equations, diagrams, alphabets, symbols of every stripe, the Jung around the daisy, figure ground, dance drawings, dream catching gestures, vision poems and visual salves, quaquaversal parallelograms, sacraments on cathedral walls and scraps attached to bulletin board. Blank paper is a passage to any destination. A drawing is a punched ticket, a trip completed, where only a memory still moves.” — Scott Pfaffman
