Rachel Comey Artist Series

I’ve has been drawing since I was a kid, as part of my interdisciplinary art practice as an adult, I developed a daily habit of drawing as a form of meditation.  Psychedelic worlds of color, shapes and architectural spaces form abstract, geometric, patterned, and sometimes figurative scenes.  Stemming from deep within my subconscious, beyond reason and logic, I see the images as openings to other worlds.  Artists like Henry Darger, Moebius, and James Turell have been key sources of inspiration, as has my sixteen-year membership in a close-knit science fiction reading group.

After finding my drawings on Instagram, Rachel Comey fell in love with the “the energy and colors and weirdness of the work,” and created a print inspired by my drawings.  To coincide with the release of the new print pieces, I showed a selection of his drawings at the Los Angeles store.
