Like a memory fading into the distance (in the mood for love), 2016, White pencil on black paper, 53x76cm

An ongoing series of drawings, begun while on residency at the Hong Kong Baptist University in 2016.

A film (movie title in brackets of each work title) is projected from start to finish onto a sheet of black paper. As the movie plays as much of the action and scenery are traced in realtime onto the black paper with white pencil.

As a result these drawings portray an abstraction of the visual bombardment experienced at 24fps when watching a film, and a compression of that time, space and movement into a single image or memory.
