In Time
Galerie pompom, Sydney
19 September – 14 October 2018

In Time is a live drawing project that examines time, duration and process. For 20 days across four weeks within a constructed artist studio in the gallery, I set out to manufacture time and focus by stepping into alternate life away from the home, family and teaching. The project enabled me to  think through making and create a series of observational drawings based on a hand made advent calendar and Hourglass. In conversation with visitors, the role of time was discussed and how it is linked to the studio defined as both cerebral and physical site of production in creative practice.
