 In concept, format, and process, my art practice is an exploration of rhythm and its relationships with ritual, time, and place. I look beyond spectacle toward the rhythm of seemingly mundane or insignificant actions and ways of making art using repetition and serialization, repetitive mark-making, everyday sounds, and simple materials. My work builds up over time through cumulative gestures and considers ideas of labour, obsession and futility. I attempt to echo the relentless nature of everyday life as a way to showcase simplicity, to highlight small differences, and to acknowledge the inevitable complexities. -Sarah Nordean
