Doing Time / Depth of Surface was an exhibition presented at The Galleries at Moore College of Art & Design January 27 - March 17, 2012 and included work produced during a seven-week residency by Spanish artists Patricia Gómez and María  Jesús González. The artists, neither of whom had exhibited previously in the U.S., have a collaborative practice grounded in art conservation; utilizing a modified version of a technique known as strappo, they work primarily to preserve the surfaces of buildings—the veritable “skin of architecture”—by detaching  a wall’s paint with glues and fabric and transferring that surface paint, in its entirety,  to a new canvas. In Philadelphia, they worked at the now abandoned Holmesburg Prison, to create large-format “printings” of drawings, paintings, and graffiti  left by former inmates on the walls.
