Jody Graham – Community Outline (working title)

Sun 5 March at 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Sunday, repeating until Sun 26 March 2023,

I am a visual artist from Sydney. My arts practice centres around drawing and exploring contemporary ways to expand on the drawing experience. Alongside drawing and materiality I am especially interested in making site responsive artworks. My intention when I go on a residency is to create new work that speaks of the location, its ecology, inhabitants, history, and future. I participate in residencies to look for something unique, something yet to be uncovered and offer my creative vision to interpret my findings.
Community Outline
Community Outline is a project, rolling out a 10m roll of paper, attaching it to a long wall and tracing around residents and visitors to The Foundations – Portland. I want this to be a community project where people can trace around their friends, neighbours, and colleagues. The figure drawings will involve simple line work, using mostly black marker pens to trace around participants. My intention is to build up figure tracings to create a layered drawing with different heights, sizes, and positions of people. I would like to at times direct the composition and have some areas with more complex line work and others with less. Many creative drawing and compositional decision about the Community Outline project I anticipate will be best determined when the project is in progress.
The resulting artwork will be a ten-meter-long participatory community drawing of the Portland community and visitors to The Foundations.
