All Night Drawing All Night, 2016

Graphite on paper 10m x 1.5m

One night, during the Force 8 art takeover of the old chapel down at West Bay (now the Discovery Centre), I took the opportunity to do an all night drawing, to immerse myself in the act of drawing, in the chapel, all night, on my own. A simple act of mark making drawn out over 12 hours and over the full length of the chapel. I loved the performance of covering the paper, thinking about the human agency and the power of drawing, the innateness of mark making, the reaching out to communicate, to describe, to plan, to imagine, to explore, to understand, and to play. This was my way back in to drawing after a long break from art making.
