Like a memory fading into the distance

Like a memory fading into the distance (Mulholland Drive) 2017, Pencil on paper, 60x84cm
Like a memory fading in the distance (Mulholland Drive) detail

A series of drawings, begun while on residency at the Hong Kong Baptist University in 2016, and completed back in London in 2017.

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 runs as much of the action and scenery are traced in realtime onto the black paper with white pencil.

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