Instead of traditional drawing tools Allyson Strafella (b.1969) has been working with typewriters, standard and custom built, for over two decades. The artist remarks: “I began drawing out of the need to communicate, to find my own language. I was looking for a way to record my thoughts and ideas and a typewriter was a tool that could keep up with my thoughts. However, I employed no rules of the written language: no capitalization, no punctuation, no paragraphs. The writing slowly transformed - the words left the page and what remained has become my language: drawing.”
