En faisant

In these investigative charcoal drawings, Belcher relies on the gesture of a historical process as a mark making strategy. Part of an ongoing project, the drawings aim to merge the process (doing—faisant) with the subject (the pheasant—faisan).

Marker Drawing Series

In the Marker Drawing Series, ink is drawn through layers of stacked paper, creating an image using gravity, the fibres of the paper and the chemicals in the markers. Each individual drawing is a still frame of fluid motion and time.
