A Rhythm Exposed (Routines: 5–6) represents the artist’s travel and conversations, combined with a curiosity into Buddhist doctrine concerning the three marks of existence. Focusing on the characteristics of Anicca, Dukkha and Anatta – Paliwords for impermanence, anxiety or suffering and non-self. They are used here as a reference to questions of interest, concern and ritual. The three characteristics are common to all forms of existence.
This exhibition is part of the artist’s ongoing Routines series. In this series, which began in 2016, drawing is used as a key conceptual tool for the artist to examine obsessions in archiving, ownership and preservation and invites contemplation of the meticulous use of ink, light, and time on the aesthetic of the artworks. It is a continuous process of assembling and making, informed by reactions to the artist’s personal encounters.
