Now this piece really was a labour of love. Drawing takes a fleeting instant of time, in the moment of the hand’s movement, and holds it still, in the mark that remains. The slow, accretive method of mark-making I employ makes each drawing a receptacle of time, gathering up these moments so they are visible in a single instant, and yet showing the timespan of the drawing’s own making. This drawing, in its scale and complexity, gathers a very considerable amount of time indeed! But the process was so meditative I could have kept going, keeping in my mind a bright memory of the hard, cold, shimmering blue skies we saw so much of here in March and April of this year.
