a collection of artworks by Josh Galletly exploring the expression of value by Mother Nature––through multiple mediums of exchange
The artworks in this series are all derived from the same process. A single line is marked freehand along one edge of the surface. A second line follows alongside in attempt to honour the path of the first. It's a simple gesture but requires a certain level of skill. Inevitably the line will waiver due to the nature of the human hand and when the current line strays too far from the expected path an innate preference for balance is expressed in any movement towards realignment. The varying tensions between the previous lines influence the path of the line unfolding in the present moment. These incremental changes compound with each iteration. As the tension in flux propagates through the medium––wave-forms define patterns of static and dynamic quality in a unique representation of the moment they're expressed.
each artwork is titled with the date it was created in the YYMMDD format. larger works that span days, weeks or months are dated from when the first line was marked.
