Marking Time

Last week I embarked on a series of drawings on long scrolls of paper.

Repetitive, intuitive mark making – sometimes slow, thoughtful, tentative, giving way to rapid, clumsy, impatient dashes and swirls.

Although I consider drawing to be at the centre of my art practice, it sometimes gets neglected. The quiet space that St Augustine’s offers seemed to call me back to that most basic of artistic disciplines – paper, pigment, hand, eye, brain, heart, response.

The drawings mark both time passing and my prevalent state of mind.
