Boundaries series

An ongoing series of work exploring the idea of boundary; an edge, border, barrier, gap, interval.  A physical change of level, habitat, space.  A perceived change in character, experience, mood, spirit.  Political, legal, geographical boundaries to delineate, contain, enclose; or obstruct, defend, barricade.  Edges; where activity, diversity, convergence, friction occurs.  The edge of the canvas or paper is where the energy and tension lies.  Horizon line; where sky and land meet.

Materials and methods used vary within this series from small illustrative acrylic & ink paintings depicting forest horizons/edges, to larger abstract oils exploring spatial and formal properties of ‘boundary’.
