Background, history, commissioner of the work

This work was part of my first solo show, shaping the void at the Pier Arts Centre inn Stromness in 2017.

Thematic/contextual information

Edwin Muir stated of his youth in Orkney ’A place where there was no great distinction between ordinary and fabulous.’ This everyday ordinary/fabulous allows me to reimagine the vast landscapes of Orkney and the in between moment of dust, dawn and twilight, has created a restrained colour palette for my work. This in-between-ness resonates with the Japanese concept of Ma, Orkney is an edge environment that exists in the in-between times of dawn, dust, twilight, and many more in between spaces. Ma underpins this in my creative practice, as it takes into consideration the space between two distinct markers of space and time. My work is balanced between different mediums, between two spaces.
