The Geography of Drawing

Title

The Geography of Drawing

Description

Crit Streed is Professor of Painting and Drawing at the University of Northern Iowa.
The Geography of Drawing is one drawing from a series of performative acts focused on the physical process of drawing. Human imperfection renders the drawing as a form unplanned while the distinctive shape language feels to me as if I had dredged them from some remote place, where the integrity of my own physical presence in the act of drawing might connect with all organic structures.<br>The drawing act is deliberate and intense but the imprecision and inaccuracy of my own hand announces what we give shape to is always in concert with our limitations. It is the impact of imperfection on what is resolute that makes the drawing become perfect.
