As with calling my abstraction that was repurposed as graphic notation a "self-portrait" this was deliberately perverse insofar as such notation at the time was largely, if not entirely, conceived of as part of 'abstraction' & most emphatically not representational. Since I probably found this drawing of mine mediocre & since I also probably thought that the de rigeur abstraction of graphic notation as squiggly lines & geometrical blocks, etc, was already a cliche by the 1970s (although there would've also been substantial precedents for the use of representation - such as Cathy Berberian's 1966 "Stripsody"), it was my purpose to make this piece ambiguously in (n)either realm.
