The first showing of real-time Walking Drawings by Foster Spragge

About

Foster Spragge is a multi-disciplinary artist whose practice encompasses various media. Her subject is often a simple every day experience that at first appears unremarkable but becomes meaningful and important when her attention is turned towards it. The Walking Drawings arose as Foster looked for appropriate places to install other works. While walking from place to place, over multiple days and often down the same streets, she turned her attention towards the act of walking itself and began by marking every step. This allowed her to build drawings that represent the detail of her daily experience with her environment. In making these drawings, Foster is also recording the space between the steps she takes and in so doing creates maps of a certain place within a specific time defined by a single activity. These drawings make real the paths, both actual and imagined, that any of us follow as we go about our daily lives.
