As a draftsman, Tim Pitsiulak is known for his precise depictions of machinery and landscapes that reinterpret the everyday. In Gathering Seaweed he uses the black of the paper to deepen the compositional space. The figure presses against the picture plane and frame, monumentalizing not only the act of gathering but also the unidentified gatherer. With its oblique composition and largescale format, the work creates a dynamic and somewhat tense image of the mundane.
