Jann Nunn Drawing Ink on Paper
Broadway Boogie-Woogie

Ink on Paper
9' x 9'

Broadway Boogie-Woogie developed circuitously while working on another piece. Originally using reclaimed materials – wooden crutches – to create a sculpture, I came upon the mark of the rubber stopper from the crutch. This pervasive motif from my childhood created evocative patterns when inked and applied to paper. I channeled rediscovered feelings of sorrow, anger and helplessness into a performance drawing, repetitively striking the paper tentatively at first and gradually with more vigor and aggression.
