  Drawings & Nudes


I created an album for my Moleskine drawings. They are quite diverse in their styles I think. 

Some of them I like; others need more work. I'm not very far into the Mole, and it is my project 

for the year. Expect a video when the sketchbook is finished!


(Unfortunately, Sites does not automatically create a lightbox to show photos, as Google does in 

Blogger and G+. If you click on the photos, they will each open in a new page individually. 

 I formatted this for my blog, sorry. Better to click on the slideshow and go to Picasa .)

Sketches as is, untouched, simply photographed in bright sunlight, 
and slightly colour-corrected to more closely match the originals . 
There are more, some I don't like, some awaiting colour.

Lovers Series, 2010


The process of creation begins with lovemaking. Conception occurs deep within the woman when her precious egg accepts the fertilization of a man's sperm. Lovemaking is a man's only bodily pleasure in the process of creating new life. It's all he's given.

The woman's body takes over. Pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, these are only her experiences. He can never know what these incredible processes feel like. He is shut out of the deepest mysteries of the beginnings of embodied life.

Personally I think this is one of the most unfair aspects of existence. I regale against it.

But it's reality. Hence these drawings and paintings. Ecstasies of the body. Petri dish insemination and mechanical wombs? What a dry life that would be!

My lovers illustrate the beginning of the story. The story of the maternal body, of the birth of new life.

This art project, to have some paintings of conception, of lovemaking, of the feeling of being connected to the universe's depths, to add, along with my birth paintings, to a video talk, may seem, oh I can't find the words, but actually  explores normal desire.

Life Drawing

Most of these drawings are from 2005-2006, and represent a return to artwork after a 15 year hiatus.
(If you click on the ''Lifedrawings" link below any image, or on the right if you open an image, it'll take you to the album, where you may view a slideshow.)
