All artists look for ways to release the creative stream—to stimulate freedom and spontaneity in their artistic expression. I see scribbling and doodling as way, not only for me but the general public, to access the creative source. One that I believe exists in all of us. It seems like child’s play but can take us to a place of comforting memories, personal moments of private contemplation and freedom.
With this installation piece I encouraged the public to engage in my work by providing a small desk, lamp, paper and pencils. With no instructions people doodled and posted their doodles in the margins of my large-scale rendition of notebook paper and scribble.
