The New Jersey shoreline's mark on my unconscious is indelible and comprises the dichotomies of beauty and affliction; mesmerizing is its waxing and waning tide and the tarry, glistening residue that has often drawn ashore. Etched in memory, I cathartically pour and pull ink across a surface with a metal rule. The resulting reticulation and striations from this back-and-forth motion, "drawing," replicates this nascent experience and often materializes through emergent benthic or pelagic forms.
