For the past 2 years, we have all been keenly aware of the passing of time. On occasion one week has stretched into infinity while an entire season has gone by fleetingly, making it difficult to discern what events happened when. My charcoal drawings are referenced from a single instance, forever put down on paper in much more than just a photograph. With Passage, my wish is to invoke feelings of curiosity about the moments of time captured in my drawings so the viewer creates their own narrative to accompany the image.
