24hour drawings

24hour drawings is an on-going series of durational drawing pieces created over 24-hours where I engage in a drawing activity on paper stretched on the walls and floor of a gallery space. This is a series of site-specific drawings where the paper wraps around the architectural details of the place. Each drawing is completed over one continuous 24-hour drawing session where mental and physical boundaries are pushed to the point of exhaustion. These site-specific drawings are both a process and a product with challenging dimensions exploring the physicality of mark making. The mental processes are reflected on series of written observations recorded in a log during the drawing marathon. The continuity of line and movement meet in the repetitive motion during the act of drawing opening up an internal dialogue where experiences over time, past and present, blend to one another bringing up haptic memories.
