Drawings

2017

In 2017, I started to create drawings that investigate the premise of comics: the image-text relationship. I wrote down on index cards phrases that stuck in my head. Then I created a series of random, spontaneous drawings that did not relate to anything at all. I used the index cards and drawings to match "meaningful" pairs of image and text. The drawings were then finished by writing the text below the drawing and hence creating a new meaning.
