In this drawing, “Seek and You Will Find” © 2003, I used an image of a flower for the first time. For me the search is relentless but I don’t always know what I am searching for until I find it.
Flowers were on the list of NO – don’t use these – I inherited from my formal education and early introduction to appropriate subject matter for (serious) contemporary art.
Also on the NO list this:
An all over, wallpaper like, composition-especially with an intertwining type of patterning
the color pink
anything overly shiny
materials like lace, beads, fabric
