Dena Ashbolt is a perceptual artist whose cinematic drawing technique consistently engages with Time, its flow and passing. Her practice is broad, ranging from drawing and painting in multiple mediums, printmaking, photomedia, and spatial collaborative projects.
“My works are made in front of the subject, I witness, draw the observation through my body, and respond with a mark. I work quickly, the eye leading and informing the hand, a practice that involves a concentration of looking, and intuitive hand/eye co-ordination devoid of distraction. My drawings respond to the flow of time as evinced by movement. ”
Ashbolt is a recent doctorial graduate at Monash University, Melbourne, whose practice focuses on how the act of drawing may respond to the flow of time.
