During the past months in self-isolation, I have been investigating drawing as a practice of mindfulness. I laid repetitive brushstrokes on paper. I let this mode of mark-making guide the formation of the imagery, following its organic flow; torrents of swirling lines come together as imagined landscapes emerge.
By allowing the currents to run its course, I let go of the desire to control the outcome of the work, just as I try to make peace with elements I cannot control in the world. Moreover, making simple, repetitive marks helped ease my anxiety and ground myself in the present.
