The title of my exhibition comes from a manuscript I began in 1980. Constructed in the manner of my theater productions of the time, it involved 100 endnotes that intimated but did not state out right the main narrative of the text [a American travelogue]. In fact, the work was an attempt to create a subject through correspondence, allusion and fragmentation. It is a form of creating art that I follow to this day, albeit for a different medium: a search for meaningful relationships between disparate images and text by excavating old newspapers, magazines and books.

Having found myself with the opportunity to show my work in my hometown, I thought it fitting and appropriate to revisit that manuscript, entitled Washington’s Profile, and develop an exhibition of drawings that reflects the intention of the original manuscript – art from reconstruction.
