This series of drawings came out of a daily practice: I light a match and smoke a piece of paper, then respond to the image by drawing with the charcoal of the match. The result is a combination of chance and intention, and is finished when the match is used up. Other materials have recently been included into the process: ink, pencil and coffee.
