Grey Line Performance
Lines within these paintings are placed as closely together as possible while maintaining a defining gap. This repeated process takes a great deal of concentration as well as a significant slowing of an everyday gesture. Exaggerating the speed at which an action is carried forth has potential of altering our perception of time. As line is the central figure in the representation of time and history, what can be said about the speed at which it manifests? Here, time is simultaneously stretched and condensed in the finality of a filled page.
