Endurance Drawings
A series of time-based endurance drawings.
Rather than being images of a subject, these drawings are documentation of the effort that went into their existence. For these works, I pinprick the paper with a pushpin for varying durations of time. The holes are placed as closely as can be accomplished without destroying the fiber of the paper. For me, these works function as meditations on the idea of intimacy. Through concentrated effort, I create objects that illustrate a level of closeness that is just at the edge of mutual destruction.
