A 2009 trek up a relatively small extinct volcano in Iceland continues to haunt me, not just for the awe and mystery it inspired but also for the unexpected feeling of existential dread that I experienced. I couldn’t wait to get up there, and once I was finally there I couldn’t wait to get down again. Because of the difficulties of working directly in that landscape, I’ve been using photographs as inspiration. Trekking with my drawing tools instead of my boots, I mentally “walk into” the image, hoist myself up vertical cliffs, lose my footing, and retrace my steps by tearing away previous marks and applying patches to establish fresh ground. The result is both an image of the terrain and tangible remnants of my virtual travels.
