These drawings, in felt-tip pen and in cut wood, are a quest into the honing of precision in the hand, to the end of creating geometrically perfect forms. The gruelling pursuit of this goal and the infinitely distanced mirage of its possibility create the tension in the drawings, which defy their human origins both in content and material. The stretched paper and wood block constructions are prepared with an equal degree of care as the drawings themselves, presenting the familiar form of a Painting with the crisp exterior of paper and wood.Subjectivity and system are married in the process by which the drawings are designed. A simple series of decisions create infinite variations on the theme of a few simple forms. Built from skeleton up, the compositions have only the most limited capacity for alteration after drawing has begun, and the work of actually completing the drawings is conducted in a trance of systematic repetition.~~~Joel Micah Webb graduated Cum Laude from the Maryland Institute College of Art in May of 2015 with his Bachelor's of Fine Art in Painting. He now lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
