Suitable Locations for the Work
Background, history, commissioner of the work
This piece was developed as part of my MA in Fine Art.
I attempt to set up an opposition between a thin fragile piece of paper and a heavy but chaotic structure. The structure at first glance is based on a grid like form - a grid that you would normally expect to be an organisational force, but as you get closer and move around the piece it appears more incoherent. The background image does not have a fixed location in time and space, it’s a natural landscape (almost lunar in quality) that seems vast and timeless.
