Artist’s Statement:
There is a certain obsession with a track, road or railroad. Spellbound by inadvertent violent or destructive marks made by us our environment and fully aware of my implicit acceptance thereof. Deliberate inclusion of world war images in charcoal serves to illustrate the harshness of this reality.
