|Mining the Sketchbook no 2: Time|
mixed media collage with found clocks
Finally I was able to amass the kind and various sizes of clocks to complete this piece.
The issue of time has been constant throughout my journal writings and art work over the years.
It is still my biggest challenge...
having enough time to make work,
the amount of time it takes to do certain processes,
managing art time in conjunction with what I like to call life maintenance, all the glamourless
and thankless jobs that we do day in and day out, over and over again.
Some of the time references above are pretty straightforward and universally understood...
Big Ben, clock gears, wrist/pocket watches, the marking of time on a wall.
Others are more personal time references.
The element that is missing from this work is sound - the repetitive ticking of those clocks.
I am working on that.
