The artwork on Albert Chamillard will be displayed on the wooden towers of the Joel D. Valdez Main Library, April 2-30, during regular library hours.
I make drawings that are comprised of layers of cross-hatched marks which create textile-like finished surfaces, with an emphasize on composition. I generally start by making small versions in ledgers, then cull from those drawings to make larger scale works. Each drawing takes many hours of repetitive mark-making to create, and through the use of alternating horizontal and vertical lines, the finished drawings can have a moving or blurring effect when viewed up close. The drawings are personal to me, and deal with concepts of memory, family, our view of the natural environment and the ways language affects and interferes with our perceptions of the world.
