Project Statement

by J.Drucker

This portfolio of drawings and commentary is part of a much longer project that can be traced by to the 1970s and event drawings done in California, as well as other studies of events in graphic form that were the basis of the 1978 Exeperience of the Medium, and drawing series exhibited at the University of California, Berkeley, Wurster Hall Gallery in 1986, and subsequently. The notion of studying events by graphically enacting or performing them is at the core of the project. The images in this portfolio all came from a single set of eighteen studies, the "Particle Zoo", that was done in 2002, but studies of events comprise many of the drawing series done in the 1980s and 1990s as well. This project brought that work into a focus and condition of critical study.
