These drawings constitute a suite of studies into "haptics", the language of touch. Informed by my desire to expand the territory between performance and sculpture, these studies look to immediate positions of my body in relation to studio events. Whether it be stepping back, taking a break, exerting impact, or looking, the drawings catch theatrical glimpses of a simultaneously still and moving body, one containing and expressing an elaborate vocabulary of touch that moves between the historical and present tense.
