Woman Emerging from the Thicket, 2009, 18 x 13.2 cm. Light-weight paper.  
My first pen drawing, part of a series 18 works total, 2009-2010.   
My explorations with the pen begin here with a dominant figure surrounded by chaotic, yet orchestrated lines suggesting movement and characters involved in their own stirrings.  Somehow they are swept together.  A slice of time blends characters and scenes that appear to dance as if glued to the surface of an unseen larger image that holds it in place, providing the energy these organisms need to exist and persist. 
 
I’m excited to share this series with you and look forward to your comments.  Thank you.

Phil Lesh, within his contemplative and soulful “Box of Rain”, which, at Grateful Dead shows, usually found me feeling like being in a meditative container where obstacles were washed away, and what remained was magic…and this certainly inspired me to create visual art based on certain visual-emotional realizations I had while seeing the band.

Micro-Cubism. Digital Bunny-Segment 240, New York, 2010, Ballpoint Pen, 35.6 x 43.2 cm; A slice of time in a limbo world depicting developmental evolution. Various species churn into potential significance as simple living matter builds its volume, abundance, defensiveness, complexity and more slowly, intelligence.

“Splashing”, Grand Prize Winner and winner of the Nature category. This photo was taken when I was taking photos of other insects, as I normally did during macro photo hunting. I wasn’t actually aware of this dragonfly since I was occupied with other objects. When I was about to take a picture of it, it suddenly rained, but the lighting was just superb. I decided to take the shot regardless of the rain. The result caused me to be overjoyed, and I hope it pleases viewers. Location: Batam, Riau Islands, Indonesia. (© Shikhei Goh)

Digital Bunny - Segment 90, New York, 2010, Black Pen on Medium Paper, 35.6 x 43.2 cm; A slice torn from a single moment in time. A lost world’s accidental repetition becomes more significant as living matter builds volume and abundance, resources fall within closer reach, displayed as miniature vignettes throughout the piece. God and the Devil preside over characters biblical and literary in scenarios that span long evolutionary periods. Daniel Falk.
