Lot Essay

I grew up drawing and painting and thinking of the body, the body as a tool of meditation, the body as the site of memory, fantasy, and sensuality. I’m not really attracted to pure abstraction. When I draw, my wrist or elbow naturally traces the lines of a body though the image can move between abstraction and representation.
—Salman Toor
