Nominated by Columbia College Chicago
My work incorporates process-based mark-making to evaluate how time is marked, spent, and recorded. I embrace a broad interpretation of drawing processes as documentation of lines and traces.
These actions are exhibited through sewing, textiles, gesture paintings, endurance-based performances, and handwriting exercises to highlight the fabrication of a routine within extensions of the drawing medium. In executing these process-oriented activities and investigating the development of muscle memory to inform new methods of pattern making, I am documenting the mastery of seemingly inessential skills. My work encourages the viewer to consider the act of making as a ritual-oriented experience which can challenge the value of time.
