Drawing of Litany

I consider this artwork to be a drawing emerging from a single gesture repeated many times. Making work in this way gives attention to meditative and performative possibilities that I see as being a significant part of the forms of art practice that interest me. I am particularly interested in the Korean movement, Dansaekhwa, as well as calligraphy and forms of contemporary practice that may share the motivations of traditional aesthetic practice, while exploring extensions to these older methods that might be said to respond to the materiality of the present day.

These litany drawings were made with ashes from the house fire of my home in Waiuku in 2016.
