The marks we make are determined by the pacing of our physical selves as defined by our interactions within the world. Drawing and mark making allow us to articulate what we observe and experience. In this dichotomy representation is a fundamental component of observation. How we see, experience and remember deteriorates, like the line work of a painting overtaking the representational aspirations of an image. In this sense, observation is a fundamental component of abstraction.
