My practice called Transmission is symmetrical drawing line, executed top to bottom, vertically, on scrolling paper which is pulled from one ream to another using a motorized easel. The scrolls produced in this work indicate time and spacial harmony. I focus in the moment of drawing to find a speaking language is varying abstract patterns using improvisation. I equate this practice to be a visual art analogous to music, and movement practices.
