The human experience of recording time is not mechanical – as interpreted by Ording time is unconfined and private. In accordance to the circumstances of our surroundings and of our temperament it passes in different ways. The concentrated, repetitive forms central to Ording’s oeuvre each and every have a unique beginning and conclusion. Alongside the way way, they subtly vibrate with the waves and permutations of the artist’s deliberate and mild touch, every mark exceptional in its very own way. A lot of of the foundational types lengthy recurring in Ording’s do the job are sorts of open up loops – rounded kinds that portray the passage of time as fluid and at any time altering.
