This ongoing series explores the question "What is a drawing?" and how dimensionality, architectural space, and time can affect the development of a drawing. Shadows cast by the sun coming through a window (in relation to architecture) are traced onto paper. 3D marks (made with dowels) are then interrelated with the 2D lines, creating a dialogue between dimensions. Works are then placed on the walls, floors, and corners of a space to converse and see what happens next.

Nicole Lenzi works between mediums and dimensions to expand the concept of drawing. She is interested in how drawing, time, space, and thinking can affect and redevelop each other. Lenzi has exhibited nationally in the United States and internationally. In 2024, her work from the series Time Lines will be included in the upcoming book Drawing Imaginary Spaces from BePI of the University of Quebec at Montréal. Lenzi has had residencies at Montalvo Arts Center and Soaring Gardens and earned a B.F.A. from Carnegie Mellon University (1995) and M.F.A. from Maryland Institute College of Art (2007).
