Carmen’s Time Stack (chez agnès b)
I started this large drawing with conté on ply weeks before my Carmen’s Time show at agnès b and decided to exhibit it last minute alongside the main installation with bath and submerged porcelains. To my surprise it snuck in nicely and became the fulcrum piece to the main room. It was a work-in-progress but seeing it on display and after chats with visitors about it, I realised it’s possibly finished. I had planned on working on it more with paint, aiming to demonstrate the varying subtle nuances of creams and whites in the stack of Carmen’s Time porcelains, hoping the final result would be some kind of totemic pile hinting at strata and the passage of time. Maybe it already does this.
