A Visual Proposal

I propose a series of four images, identical faces filling the frame, only the light source changes in each image representing the passing of time. The figure remains the same, impassive, sitting quietly in a tranquil space, alone, staying still as the time passes.

A rare opportunity to take time to reflect, time to think. The stillness of each figure only emphasises the significance of the passage of time. Each image will be worked in charcoal and conte crayon in three tones onto a square of canvas which will then be stitched into with toning threads.

I would like to take some time for a rare opportunity to reflect... but I think I need to get stitching!

  1. just a thimbleful....

    It sounds wonderful, Gina and as you say, very thought provoking. The swift passage of time is an amazing phenomenon - it is happening even as I type! It is scary to think we are helpless to hold it back, or do a pause and rewind. If only..
