Drawing: Charcoal, Chalk and Fixative on Wood.

John-Paul Rautio creates meta drawings. The images recall scientific photography: microscopic, rapatronic and astronomical. Rautio's work is informed by Japanese enso paintings, although he trained his hand by studying the Western traditions of figure drawing. His use of charcoal references the cave paintings of prehistory. The forms emerge as Rautio rubs charcoal into a wood surface. He makes marks and observations that both observe and define the new forms. They are theoretical objects that exist on a number of levels - as 'figures', 'energies' and depictions of the moment of their own creation.

Rautio was in his second year of a degree in physics when he realized that the things that drew him to science are also core tenets of art: the excitement of learning new things and experimenting at the frontier of the unknown. He graduated with a degree in both from Bowdoin College in Maine. After working as an artist for hire in Boston, Massachusetts for two years, Rautio left to Italy, where he completed a classical drawing program at the Angel Academy of Art. Seeking a more contemporary approach, he spent six months at Studio Escalier in France. He is currently living and working in Toronto, Canada

All images are ready to hang. The beveled frame floats the image 1.5in from your wall, and the integrated french cleat allows for easy hanging with two screws.
