This series is about repetitive, sustained movement: drawings and prints composed of hundreds of lines, dots and circles and using everyday materials such as found wood, discarded paper, Styrofoam meat trays, sewing thread and chalk. They are made by repeating specific actions: drawing a dot or a line; sewing a stitch; pressing down an ink-stained stamp. This requires a level of endurance that creates a tension between the effort involved and the quality of the materials used.
Repair stitches and rough edges are left in place as evidence of both past history and making in some pieces. In others the marks build up until they obscure themselves. These marks, be they permanent stitches in paper or easily-erased chalk on wood, resemble a counting system or lost language.
