Construction – Jina Wallwork

 

The acrylic paint acts as scaffolding and I construct a drawing upon it. It is a reverse of a common process. Usually a drawing will act as the basis of painting. With this piece, I am traveling through the process backwards. I begin with a painting which then becomes a drawing. I question what it would be like to create a painting or drawing, outside of linear time. The rules would change dramatically. In the absence of time the process would no longer need to be linear. A process is seen through the creation of layers; it is the surface that is constantly altered. We rarely consider the cross section of a painting, as the perfect view of every moment within the process. If we existed outside of time we could reorder the layers in the cross section as well as making alterations to the surface. At first thought it would create endless possibilities. However, without time the piece would always be completed and never begun. It would exist as energy, waiting for time to allow it to take shape.
