An emphasis on composition and texture, Iron Skins is a triptych of two 10" x 10” and one 14" x 20" drawings originating from small passages of an old diesel engine that sat for thirty years to rust, collect dirt, debris, and deteriorate. The outcome has more in common with abstraction-although very meticulously and realistically drawn in pencil. The uncommon subject matter challenges the viewer on the core meaning of beauty.
