Pamela Matsuda-Dunnn

Shadows of Destruction are pen and ink drawings of man-made structures which have been damaged or destroyed by man. It began with a newspaper photo of an aerial view of the World Trade Center site taken shortly after 9/11. I did not know how to begin such a complex drawing, so I began with the shadows areas protected, veiled, and secreted from the sun by what was left standing. As an artist, sometimes I do not know why I do things and it is only later that a pattern is revealed to me. So it is with the photos which I collected and from which I have extracted these drawings: the genesis of this work was my fascination and horror with what humans, in their hubris, could and did do to one another.
