The life of man is often compared to a day, which would put prime time in the twilight years of life. It is a time of remembrance and of oblivion. The mind examines the stages of life as the body deteriorates. The drawings in the Prime Time and Prime Matter series on Japan paper represent man as pipework or an irrigation system gone haywire. The actual bottles placed on the frames of the drawings once held various kinds of pick-me-ups from berry juice to poppers. The drawings in the Muistumia series were made with Indian ink on thermal carbon paper which was blackened after drawing by heating the paper. Over time, the black will fade due to sunlight and the underlying drawing will again appear. This process remains underway in the drawings now on display.
