'Sticks and Stones' is a series of studies exploring language creation. Geometric forms protrude from a landscape by means of erasure. The drawings both mimic signs propped up to communicate a message and also act as traps to capture a possible predator. The method of removal by erasure speaks to an existing absence and a survivalist need to articulate from a flat graphite void.
