tidal gravity

powdered graphite and eraser on wall surface

9’ x 30’ - total duration 18 hours

Montserrat Gallery, Beverly MA


The wall surface is burnished with powdered graphite until a glossy sheen emerges, the marks are made with an eraser pressed to the wall in a large sweeping gesture the marks were accumulated over a continuous 18-hour duration. The resulting work has a sense of depth and movement,  and the creation of a new space, outside of time, born out of obsessive repetition. The title of this work references my self-published text examining obsession, perception and artistic agency.
