Mask, 2001

Here's another of my drawings. This is markers and pastels on posterboard. Many of my drawings look somewhat tribal or indigenous, though I never have consciously to achieve that. I love classic 20th century abstraction, which sometimes nodded to the tribal, and, of course, path-breaking representational artists like Picasso were greatly influenced by African art. In this case, I set myself the task of creating an image that was explicitly tribal. I don't know what this creature is. Maybe a breed from the spirit world.
