digital print on Saunders Waterford hot pressed paper [660mm x 1016mm], drawing / erasure on Saunders Waterford hot pressed paper [660mm x 1016mm], and assembled residues from the process of drawing and erasing approximately 200mm diameter x 120mm high.
to hazelhurst and back [seventeen hours drawing / erasing] 2017 is a response to the Hazelhurst Regional Gallery’s Art on Paper Award. Imagining that I would have to drive a work to the gallery if shortlisted, I asked Google Maps how long it would take. The work was made by drawing for eight and a half hours (the drive to Hazelhurst) and then erasing that drawing for eight and a half hours (the drive back to Melbourne). It has no compositional intent in mind, rather the processes of drawing and erasing finish when the time allocated is exhausted.
Presented in three parts, it consists of a digital print of the original drawing, the erased drawing, and the residue from these processes (pencil and eraser shavings) are assembled as a collection of materialised and spatialised time.
