24-Hour Endurance Drawing Project
An amazing experience to have taken part in, “The 24 Hour Endurance Drawing Project”, an event in which artists start & finish a work of art in a continuous 24 hours.
Co-founded by Hannah Bertram and Kendall Nordin in 2005, the project has been staged numerous times in cities across the globe. I participated in Melbourne in 2018 hosted by the Art Room.
My Project was about reduction. I divided my time into 4 hours blocks. I started with 6 different mediums. Charcoal , textured paint, ink, pigments, acrylic paint and newspaper. I created stone like images and took every 4 hours one medium out. I ended up with a 7.5m long paper scroll.
It was challenging, fun and exhausting all at the same time. Loved it and would do it again .
