Phil Ralston

These drawings, all improvised, owe a primary debt to the work of the abstract expressionists. It has been my intention to look within myself and find out whether I can draw upon any resources I may find there to create something of value to the world, something whose innate vibe might resonate within other people. I do have criteria for the decisions involved in making the drawings, but I feel no need to try to put those considerations into explanatory notes. Indeed, I don’t consider myself possessed of 100% authority to clarify the question of where these drawings come from. But I am deeply grateful for the fact that there are a growing number of people who seem to like the work.
