Absences #19, 2020




These drawings (India ink on kozo paper) are an outgrowth of my weaving practice, starting with weaving’s intersecting systems and mathematical patterning, but then breaking away from the loom’s imposed logic. While abstract, they are also a more personal outgrowth of my climate research. I think of each drawing as synthesizing multiple forms of record-keeping: all pages of a journal recording my relationships to places within the context of climate crisis, some more like maps or charts, and others more like landscapes. When I started this series, “Absences and Recesses” in late February 2020, I was reflecting on land and bodies harmed by petrochemical extraction. Continuing these drawings over the last few months has been a meditation on multiple absences and losses in the face of ongoing, intertwined climate crisis and health crisis.
