Exhibition Statement

"For drawing sake"

We draw to explore

We draw to discover ourselves

We draw because we want to know

We draw because Leonardo did

         and Stewart Davis did

         and Käthe Kollwitz did

         and Ellsworth Kelly did

         and Pollock did

          and Vincent did

We draw instead of taking drugs

         or booze

Or giving into depression

We draw to be poets

          and comedians

To Laugh at politics

         and death

We draw because we love to

        because we have to

In the words of the poet T.S. Elliott

"And the end of all of our exploring

is to arrive at were we started

and know the place for the first time"

We draw for drawing sake
