Double Check - Cynthia Schwertsik
Drawing, in this case: performative frottage is an immediate and intimate medium where ideas are swiftly transferred to paper. I always have pen and paper within reach, that gives me the comforting feeling that I will not miss a moment.

About This Project

Do you have a growing distrust in the truth of the visual world around you? Are you suspicious about the persistence of pixilation? As for myself I increasingly feel the need to double check my presence through touch, in the attempt to bridge the gap between a visual appearance and the kinetic experience of being alive. As an everyday record, I transfer my changing profile as a landscape of assurance onto paper.

In these drawings, the paper is warped into three-dimensional forms through the pressure against the underlying landscape. The paper captures the tracks inscribed into skin, thereby replicating almost a ghost of a portrait.

Drawing, in this case. frottage is an immediate and intimate medium where ideas are swiftly transferred to paper.  I always have pen and paper within reach, that gives me the comforting feeling that I will not miss a moment.
