Artist Journal #3


With the rock drawing, I was still thinking about contour, the exterior of the form/shape. Frottage collects information about the form, within its own boundaries, disregarding the linear edges of the form from which the texture was derived; capturing its index. This is similar to what my process is with the figure. By recording small moments of line and form within the figure, the image that results is disjointed as pieces, but cohesion remains because the pieces were all gathered from the same whole. Thus without giving all the information, the entity of the whole is communicated through the parts. I achieved this with the landscape as well, through direct translation in frottage.
