“Far Places is part of a group of drawings I did for an exhibition titled Far From the Madding Crowd in 2018. I had originally intended to include paintings as well, but decided to confine the show to drawings for continuity’s sake. The process of working practically every day on the drawings, imagined places, one leading to the next, far from the world of despair and craziness that we humans appear to be unable to get beyond, became a retreat. They are addressed to me and whom they may concern.” – The Artist
