Drawing on Entropy 2018 | Hazard Gallery Johannesburg

A seemingly fragile surface resists. Pushing through, seeking the threshold. Marks and colours morph together organically, living and breathing - structure perishes. Unearthing subdermal layers, fossil-like traces hint at entropy. The cyclical process repeating again, to become and decay.

Drawing on Entropy is a dialogue of mediums exploring the use of experimental drawing and painting as a means to embrace chance and the ephemeral cycle of creation and disintegration. The work forms an allegory for the breakdown of our traditional values, and the fragmented nature of our engagement with space and relation to the world.

The performative process embraces randomness, resulting in a newly unfamiliar and abstract landscape which draws attention to our increasing alienation from nature and the spaces we inhabit.
