[“CATHEDRAL ONE” will be the first major piece in the Cathedral Project: 2,500 drawings from 1997-present under a single pane of glass.]
“Since 1997 I’ve drawn thousands of “Hughcards” [cartoons drawn on the backs of business card], just to give me something to do while sitting at the bar. Over time they have become increasingly religious and or meditative, over time they became ‘Cathedrals’.
(What is a “Cathedral”?)
A “Cathedral” is a series of x-hundred smaller, business-card”Hughcard” drawings (number per piece varies), forming a single piece under a single pane of glass. The pieces are designed to generate a state of “creative contemplation” in the viewer.
“Cathedral” is a metaphor for a Holy Place, where the spirit goes to be amplified through contemplation.
