Fragments/Chris Guest

Chris Guest presents a series of large-scale black-and-white drawings, which demonstrate his concern with obsessional mark making, issues of time, the fight to cover (or not to cover) the entire working surface and the impermanence of the image.

Rigidly setting aside uninterrupted drawing sessions, Guest draws comparison with horror vacui – an obsession to completely cover the entire surface of an artwork with great detail, removing any ‘voids.’
