The artists says: “Morning is a hand-drawn animation about the first hour of my day. Although the plot is relatively simple, I have tried to draw each gesture and object as vividly as I can. In doing so, I have tried to reclaim a part of my day that I am rarely conscious of. Stop-motion animation is well-suited to this undertaking. It is slow and repetitive, and it often involves a close examination of subtle, almost imperceptible movements. Morning exemplifies my approach to drawing in both its domestic subject matter and in its attempt to intensify an experience of life through the close observation of fine details.”
Exhibition opens: 3–5pm Saturday 10 August 2019
