Lost in it
[Mixed Media on panel 37x24]
by Thomas Ziorjen
"The human form and the drawn line give structure and focus to my work. The human presence in a painting has an expressive power and allows entry. I use marks that are not just mimetic, but retain their identity as marks made by the human hand. Exploring the relationship between the human body and the lyrical, calligraphic mark, the nervous, the tentative mark, or the angry angular mark; the smear, the jab - marks that represent and marks set free from their function as imitation, and the links between them."
