In a culture where continuous change, speed and efficiency signify progress and success, slowness has become synonymous with time wasted. Tenuously based on the grid ? a system imposing order - my work is an ongoing attempt to document the passing of time. Whether drawn, stitched, folded, wound or unravelled, the constructed lines continually threaten to defy order, requiring constant correction and adjustment. As if the hand had a memory, the slow repetitive and often tedious processes of creating lines finally becomes meditative.
Using a pared back vocabulary of lines, common materials and skills often associated with domesticity and home crafts, my art making has become less about the finished object and more about the process, the act of ?getting there? rather than ?arriving?.
