Residue Series

Residue drawings

Residue drawings examine the residues that bodies secrete and the organs that produce them. The series makes the hidden visible and in so doing reminds us that what we often consider disgusting is quite beautiful and not to be ashamed of. They are made of poured ink, iron filings and vinegar. The choice to not use paint brushes or mark making instruments that would offer more control, made room for the more messy qualities of the residues we make to be revealed. They drawings also look at the inner body sensations that come and go in cyclical, seasonal and age
related ways.
