drawing titled Two Phobias

Two Phobias

To a phobic, the depth of fear is wholly out of proportion to the actual threat. Fear of the moon—why is madness called lunacy? Musophobia—even the thought of mice or rats can induce states ranging from panic to paralysis. Two Phobias explores out-sized fear in an over-sized medium.

Drawn to the Wall V

Every three years, five artists are invited to spend two weeks at Gonzaga University’s Jundt Art Museum to create a drawing on one side of an 8-by-12 moveable wall. The following video documents the making and removal of these drawings.
