About This Piece
This is a drawing of the fabled dance of darkness performed by witches on the full moon. I like to say that it protects all who display it from bad vapors. But, of course, that's silly. I started working with marker after seeing an extraordinary exhibit of Keith Haring's work at the Brooklyn Museum, A walked out of that show in a daze, touched not only by his sense of pattern but also by his sense of humor. As was true for his work, this work has a political theme. It is aimed at the superstitious, the fundamentalist and the intolerant.
I have always focused on archetypal and mythic imagery to evoke emotional themes and to reference darker fantasies. I have an abiding interest in figurative drawing, working on paper and exploring new ways to handle traditional materials.
