Drawing, in its broadest sense, is mark making. My work is an investigation into the potential and diversity of drawing as a medium and not 'just a process'. My works explore a combination of bubble solution, graphite and ink and time led and performative processes. The object is captured on paper. It dissolves, explodes and ceases to exist in its current form. What remains is a mark of an object that once existed, a moment captured in time. These created forms have then been manipulated and appropriated to create playful scenes/narratives. My work, investigating drawing, engages with everlasting changes in its process. I have combined ink with different solutions and conditions to create bubble and ice. I enjoy the idea of having a physical object, an object, which can only exist in a moment (in some cases in certain conditions) and trying to capture an essence of its being. I am changing the state of my materials for them to permanently alter. An everlasting change. Core is a British artist who studied Fine Art at The University of Huddersfield (2009) and now lives and works in Berlin. Exhibits include: Self Portrait Exhibition, Brooklyn Art Library, New York (2012); 60 Drawings Exhibition, Bankley Studios & Gallery, Manchester (2012); Drawing Connections, Siena Art Institute, Italy (2011); Twitter Art Exhibition, Exhale Unlimited (E.U.)
