Extended Label Info: This print of a drawing etched onto steel is from an exhibition of Lexier’s work at Dunlop Art Gallery, “A Minute of My Time” (1998). This series consisted of drawings that each took exactly one minute to create. Lexier uses a variety of media: prints, chalkboard drawings, and etchings. His gestural, expressive mark-making contrasts the personal and individual against the organized logic of conceptual art and explores the way we measure and experience time.
