Artist's description:

I made this drawing during my month long residency in Caylus, France. There, I saw barbed wired embedded in a tree stump. It made me think about man-made intrusions to nature with barriers and boundaries. Using thin paper and charcoal, I made rubbings of the wooden surfaces and applied them to the drawing. Applying the texture from rubbings made me “feel” the surface with my hands and eyes. Then I drew back into the texture with charcoal and white chalk or cut out lines and smudged with my eraser, which expanded my vocabulary of marks and made a richer surface.
