About Craig


My most recent body of work entitled Durations, begun in 2007, represents a break from my technological-rooted work Drawing Voices, which set out to explore, catalogue and use the aural artifact made by inscription as a viable tool for communicative expression. Durations is a return to basic drawing approaches using basic materials. The rate of the execution of these drawings is exceptionally slow. They mimic visually and conceptually the building of stratification over geological time and the sound waves as seen in oscilloscopes and spectrograms. One could think of my method being inverted in that rather than responding to a sound that yields a pictorial result [e.g. Drawing Voices], I am responding to a visual [line] that yields the appearance of a spectrographic result. I also see these works as internal expressions. The slow and obsessive nature of the process literally places me within the work through the meditative produced through its creation.

Additionally, I would like to mention that my work has always been primarily focused on exploring process. The mission and motivation of my work continues to strive to be immersed in an ever-changing method. I re-invigorate my process through a heartened effort to remain curious. Another source of satisfaction motivating my desire to continue evolving my methods are potential outcomes and possibilities to converse with other artists, thinkers and the community.

MY REVIEW
pic a; memorial of an edified establishment, through the ages of the past.
pic b; symphony for a humble memorial.

wow, craig, what an interesting change from your work in boston! really intelligent and alluring, as usual.......

The overall kinetic energy explosion derived from the released molecular fusion of the wood fiber and material application is truly remarkable.

Or to simplify, it sure is "purdy"

I love the wood grain as a canvas for these two works, but I feel a tention between your contribution and the wood grain. It seems like they are competing- not at all working together or complimenting each other's aesthetics. No deference or consideration is given to the movement and shape of the woodgrain with the application of your medium. I love the concept, but I would like to see it all come together a little more! Nature creates masterpieces all the time- draw inspiration from nature and work with it- as opposed to on top of it:)

OH EM GEE X.X
Its beautiful <3
For some reason i see a bird in that picture,though. O.O stiill soo pwettehh <3

very cool I like it this would make great arts for my house I have the perfect place

Looks like it could be cover art on a Shins album. Very cool

Better than yesterday!!!!

I enjoy these works. In visiting the website, I am only grasping a little bit of what you are capturing with the auditory/visual connection. I would love to see a video of the process in action to better understand your vision. These drawings are captivating and pleasant to look at. I would be further enticed by a better understanding of the interactions going on here.

Cheers and Blessings,
Dustin

These are beautiful, thank you!
