Bic round stic and liquid paper pen on sketch book paper.
Gum Do (pronounced Kgoom Doe) is Korean for Way of Sword. The hungul (characters/words) are the background image.
Each breath is of life and death. An expression and acceptance of soal and mortality. This is the infinate second before talgum/palto/drawing of sword. Here we reflect on all that will come and all that has passed. This is as close as most will ever get to understanding the sword and its place in the world. To draw is to accept the failure of victory.

As an artist I admit to floating between worlds of reality and perception, peering into many concepts but seldom at home in any. My art work is therefore a scattered and biased report of these journeys. Not the world as it is or as it should be, rather possibilities of what may be.
