In 2000, in a fit of anger and frustration at the election of GW Bush, and after years of collaborative work in the theater, I had a strong desire to produce a group of drawings. I wanted to explore certain thoughts about inebriation, religion, sacred and profane imagery and the nature of drawn reality as opposed to ontological, tangible reality. What rules might apply in a field of appearances, and what might this have to do with delusion, hallucination, divination and the impulse to surpass the constraints of nature, and in particular the boundary of death? I made a group of large drawings, usually five or six feet high by three or four feet wide, and another series of smaller, related studies. These drawings were exhibited once, in a one-man show at the Morat Institute in Freiburg, Germany in 2001.
