“Sleep.” is an ongoing series of drawings investigating semi-conscious mark-marking. These drawings are produced amidst falling asleep at night, lying with pen in hand on paper; they capture a last few visual expressions and thoughts of the day, existing somewhere in between the waking world and the unconscious.
Currently, these drawings are being worked up into large-scale embroideries, using needle & thread to mimic the spontaneity of the original pen marks, creating an ironic juxtaposition between the original spontaneous and unconscious marks with the deliberate, careful act of stitching.
