Eric L. Porter
Draw, draw, draw -- it's what I do. I am interested in identity and how the initial, intimate societies of family influence us as individuals. I examine these stories by drawing trees as a habitat representing the family -- a new view of the Family Tree. Some of the pieces in this series are experienced; some are observed; some are imagined.
I see and think of connections between idea and form constantly... shape represents content, content is expressed through shape.
