This is one of a new series of self portraits.  They are pyrographs or burn drawings, on paper with paper embedded into the work.

In a series of self portraits I’m drawing further on the relationship between the environment and the body. I see relationships emerging between the infinite nature of digital information and the finite world, between the constant sense of making and remaking of oneself. There is something about the eternally shifting relationship between order and chaos and the struggle to reach a point of equilibrium.

These are images from a newly completed commission for the JE Dunn corporate collection.  It is a pyrograph of the steel infrastructure of the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, designed by Moshe Safdie. It reveals the bone structure of the building and   as  construction progresses  this amazing infrastructure is being enveloped in concrete.  As with the one minute videos, this pyrograph is a drawing  related to the construction of this building. The size of the drawing is 51″ x 88″.  Photography by E.G. SchempfKauffman Center for the Performing Arts
