Drawing Time, the intrinsic temporality of drawing by Andrew Folan. Catalogue essay available HERE

Drawing Time prioritises work in which time is intrinsic to its conception. While drawings result from condensing durational factors into singular static images, the synthesis of time and duration are extant and legible in the final outcome. ‘How long did that take?’ is a question arising, when viewing labour-intensive drawing. More important than actual production time is the range of decisions made while working, resulting in dynamic, mutable, time conscious and transitionally aligned drawings.

Exhibiting Artists include; Aideen Barry, Gary Coyle, David Eager Maher, Brendan Earley, Joy Gerrard, James Hanley, Pat Harris, Alice Maher, Kieran Moore, Eilis O’Connell, Mick O’Dea, Magnhild Opdøl, Una Sealy, Dorothy Smith, Donald Teskey.
