Drawing Limits

An artist residency exploring mark making as a form of thinking.

During a two-week residency with the School of Making Thinking I considered mark making as an approach towards "thinking through" or dealing in the world. More specifically, I considered the verb "to draw" with its implications of both bringing forth and setting boundaries. I used this dualism as a starting point for a daily drawing practice as well as an investigation of drawing through found natural materials, where the drawings were temporary and only live on as documentation. The work was informed by ongoing research into Worringer's writings on the psychology of style through abstraction and empathy.
