Artist Statement

This is number 9 in my new Tower of Babel series. For this picture I decided to have the tower floating in the air above the desert. I like this picture, because it reminds me of the work of the classic surrealists, such as Dali, De Chirico and Magritte. For this drawing I used a new to me German pencil, which produces rich, velvety greys and blacks and I like the effect.

The picture is made with acid-free materials and is archivally mounted and matted.
