Roger Palmer




I do drawings in series, as project ideas, working a theme from the sub-narrative or unpredictable edges. I define a drawing that works as one that cannot be used to protect oneself from one's own sense of wit.

I think the social or political begins to live in a drawing through unexpected situations, allowing one to savor a small fragment of context. The acceptance of numbness from over stimulation by a contemporary issue is a facing of the page. It's a daily page made of rag and paralysis waiting for the stumbling of a wet brush. The act of trying to feel something that is at least alive in the hand. A drawing diary against the blunting flow of information too cleaned and trimmed to support the weight of its own absurdity.
