Ten Minute Drawings, 2011
"I made this series with the self-imposed constraint of completing each drawing in under ten minutes, covering paper with drywall finishing tape and painting over the tape with black paint. Starting with a ten-minute drawing, I gave myself one minute less to complete each subsequent drawing.
This drawing series was initiated when I tried on black and white checkered eye frames. I immediately knew that wearing them in Indy would be difficult due to the inevitable association with the Indy 500 checkered flag finish. I declined to buy the eye frames, but immediately began making the drawings in my studio. The series is both an elegant and playful meditation on time and the freedom that comes from working within deliberately limited systems."
