I worked on a series of drawings today renewing a bunch of shapes I have used in the past--this time to explore the idea of alchemy. I combined a dozen on my studio wall to contemplate their relationships. I also brought light to some studies from 10 years ago--black shapes connected at the hips--that are now really exciting to me. All of the above (see below) relate back to my dream balloon series (2009). Now these shapes are coming back...transformed!
