Drawings

Drawings by Jason M. Marak

Artist Statement:
This statement is one hundred words. Exactly. I like limits: word, speed, spending — fixed points to operate between or consider zooming past. I also like repetition: A sound or shape or image or movement that, while retaining its original attributes, becomes something new through doubling, tripling, quadrupling. Elements are emphasized/de-emphasized by recurrence. These drawings are built from the repetition of interlocking five-stroke units: their shared genetic code. One unit leads to the next until a figure suggests itself. This process provides me the perfect trinity: the pleasure of mark making, the spontaneity of abstraction, and the descriptive possibilities of form.
