Hidden Drawings

Hidden drawings

Throughout the KARF installation there are hundreds of drawings that are hidden. Some drawings cover pages and pages of the binders and books that sit on the shelves of each workstation but don’t get opened. Some are added to small scrolls that get coiled up and put into odd shaped wooden boxes or metal canisters.  Some scribbles and symbols are marked onto bits of paper that, later are covered up by labels or additional papers with more drawings and writings on them. I can only feel the authenticity of this particular artwork by doing this hiding of things. It fits in with the real world around me. There are hidden things. Each hidden thing has its own presence. I think the presence it has somehow influences me even though I can’t experience it directly. It’s like life drawing. One must understand all the elements under the skin-muscles, bones, arteries and such in order to draw the human form properly. Even though these things are hidden they have presence. So, I feel I have to make the presence of the hidden things so the person who views this installation will possibly feel the presence of the hidden things too.
