Chris Yñiguez / Selected Works



graphite on vellum, 213x274cm, 2008

A process-based, site-specific drawing that is intimately tied to the place and time of its making. The large sheet of vellum is taped to the apartment wall and gently brushed with powdered graphite. The brushing reveals dark specks due to tiny blemishes and bumps on the wall surface behind it. Where a speck appears, a bird is drawn. In effect, this ‘chance’ composition of migratory birds is a document of both the physical site of its making, and a psychical state of surrender and departure.
