"Unseen Lines" text detail (c) Dianne Bowen
Drawing is like taking a line out for a dance, sometimes it's a heavy metal slam dance, sometimes it's as structured as a waltz, and sometimes it's a virgina reel and I'm just switching hands and partners, pencil, paint, paper, film...

An artist's journey making sense of the world through art, language and conversation.

Late night studio activities lead to small paper works. While the writting for these comes at a slower pace, the visual works flood my thoughts. Bend and fold, light touches thick paper, curl and glide pencil, paint pen to paper finding the perfect spot to stop and rest. Glinting silver comes and goes depending on light and where you stand.

In the studio, progress;

New work is teaming with life and a new color palette. I'll call them "tubular paper sculptures" for now. The first related heavily to rivers and running water as well as weather and ariel views. The associated writing came rather quickly tho much quieter and perhaps more simple in construction.

"river seeking level, flowing an inaudible tale, whispers past lake stones, thrashing through white water, falling from cliffs into blue abyss"
