Lee Etheredge IV



Lee Etheredge IV's mark-making tool of choice is the manual typewriter. It takes Etheredge over a million hits at the typewriter to make one of his minimalist drawings--letter after letter, row after row, his accumulated marks become squares on edge, circles in a void, and bands of gray adrift.  For Etheredge, making these drawings is a meditative act out of which hidden natural and mathematical patterns emerge "like the sedimentary layers of a lake or the annual rings of a tree...typing is a process of making time visible."
