Immersive: Exhibition – Interim Postgrad Exhibition

The Language of drawing and mark making enables me to express something raw and immediate in my experience. I am interested in the use of drawing to respond to a site and explore how a space can be transformed through the immediacy and qualities of the media.

Observational drawings of people moving and interacting within a space were the starting point for developing more personal themes and reconnecting with my practice.

Reoccurring themes within the work are the passing of time and memory. The drawings reflect feelings and sensations of being still as the world moves around me. The imagery became layered and overlapping. Tracing paper became important to express transience as shadow imagery emerged.

The pieces displayed were made in the empty house of my Grandparents before the house was sold. They are presented as visual mementos to express the nature of how memories project and emerge.
