April, 2018. Ireland. Dony told us that drawing was not just a way of expressing himself, but a way of seeing and a way of being. On many occasions he would talk about the dance between adding material and subtracting it. Whether in sculpting or drawing, the form is often brought forward and than backwards and thus gradually becomes a more articulate expression. It was hard not to think of those words editing this film. I found myself constantly struggling to arrive at the right sense of time and non-linearity. It was always a battle between the impulse to add and the impulse to subtract. Gradually, the gesture takes shape, becomes more recognizable, and then it’s time to move to the next page.
