about me

Sketch Video combines formal drawing practise with analogue video hardware to create artworks that are time-based yet reference traditional portraiture. The project is a means for me to revisit my earliest artistic practise, drawing, but using my current tools, analogue video, as the medium.

I use a Sony Family Studio Sketch Video Titler to render their subjects, projecting the video feed onto a canvas, whilst a second duplicate feed is recorded to VHS tape. Once the portrait is complete, the screen is deleted, and only the VHS recording remains as evidence.
