Ceara Metlikovec: Indigo - Art Collector

Ceara Metlikovec, Indigo March 8, 2017. Graphite on watercolour paper, 101.6 x 66 cm
. Courtesy of the artist and Fox Jensen McCrory Gallery, Auckland.

Ceara Metlikovec’s large drawings place us in front of a gently oscillating screen – one that steps in and out of a caliginous depth. Like Agnes Martin, Metlikovec establishes the province and begins a regime of marking the paper, inching across this field, gesture by single gesture, until it is complete. This accumulation of single vertical graphite bands traces time and pressure. Like a closely observed genome map they appear to be an information barcode that carries data in their form and their material in their processional gesture.
