2022: From the Pfister Hotel

The year 2022 was another landmark for Daydrawing. From April 2022 through March 2023 the daily project takes up residence at Milwaukee's oldest and most prestigious hotel, The Pfister. I am honored to be selected as their 13th Artist-In-Residence.

Since setting up the studio here, the daily works are informed by stories of the people visiting the hotel. The studio is open to the public, who are invited to sit down and share their thoughts, stories, or poems using a vintage Smith-Corona typewriter that lives in the studio. Their collected tales inform the daily work. As visitors purchase individual pieces for their own collections, the united narrative is dispersed around the world, further linking us all to one another.

If you would like to participate in this process by collecting or viewing the 2022 drawings or sharing a note, you can find me and the drawings at The Pfister through March, 2023. Most of the pieces from 2022 are in the studio, located on the first floor, just off the lobby.


2021 Concludes Six Years of Marking Days

These groups represent five lines of inquiry from the daily works on paper of 2021.

For comparison and continuity, some groups also contain selections from previous years, representing earlier investigations into the same subjects.

(Framing directly from the studio is an option and will add up to two weeks before shipping. View framed examples at the bottom of this page.)

FRAMED EXAMPLES: This is what to expect if you order a framed drawing from the studio.

Drawing As Hyperobject

Every day I complete a drawing and each of these is a small piece of a much larger object called Daydrawing. Since January 1, 2016, I have added one panel per day to the drawing. Of key importance to the work is that it has no defined size and is in continuous creation. The drawing is conceived to exist in many locations at once; it eludes time and space in its scope.

Each daily addition is rendered in powdered graphite and is a keyhole view into a supplementary universe, a hallucinatory daydream that responds in part to observations throughout my day, and in part to narratives already at play within the Daydrawing universe.
