Her description confirms issues: that the performative means of drawing is liminal, relocating among wakeful determination and subconscious compulsion, and that it features a synthesis of addition and subtraction. it truly is impressive that Brien spends as a lot time elimination marks as she does placing them on and that ‘removal marks’ develop into simply one other form of extra mark within the building. the method of subtraction and addition within the actual act of drawing touches at the distinction among what's obvious and what's conceived, and back among what's conceived and what seems to be at the paper. the method refers, through subtraction, to what's absent in addition to current to description. whereas Brien has an ‘idea’ of what she wishes, she avoids being too transparent previous to the motion.

Derrida and Brien every one articulate the interdependence of belief with the actual approach. every one repositions drawing with its construction as a selected type of considering that can not be separated from its peformance: it really is performative pondering. The functionality of drawing (Berger’s ‘doing’) reacts to a succession of disturbances: the process of addition and erasure, of gesture and alter, of intuition and suggestion. What the functionality implicitly tells us is that the drawing method enacts a simultaneous actual contradiction that, as Katrinka Wilson determines, is a transaction among visual appeal and idea.
