A selection of four drawings taken from the series 'Study in Truth and Error', shown as part of the exhibition 'We Are All Measured Together', Platform A, Middlesbrough, UK, 2016.
These drawings employ a new language developed from the ongoing Timecasting series -expressive, indeterminate forms loop and overlap one another to create compositions at once human and alien. Formed from a series of repeated mechanical gestures unfolding over a period of many hours, these densely rendered works convey a seemingly infinite cyclic movement. These drawings attest to Kennedy's aherence to a challenging process of making, wherein an awkward beauty is discovered through the meeting of instinctive decision making and the chance procedure.
