Age Drawings
Natural Pigment on Mulberry Paper
2021

The Age Drawings were the first body of work made for The Sindhu Project that suggests the Harappan script or simultaneously a city grid.The pigment is made from turmeric, thought to have been first cultivated during the Harappan era.Two surfaces are at play in Age Drawings, whereby the mark made on the top sheet of mulberry paper forms a shadow-like mark on the sheet beneath. One sheet from the pair is on display. The shadow-like mark informs what the physical mark may have originally looked like and vice versa. As time and age act on these drawings, communication between the original form and its shadow, between the past and the present continues to evolve.
