Background, history, commissioner of the work
This work was developed during my MA in Fine Art and has been exhibited at my end of year show and in the Copeland Gallery, Peckham, London.
The piece attempts to evoke the liminal spaces that form the boundaries/edges between the urban and the rural as described in ‘Edgelands’ by Paul Farley & Michael Symmons Roberts, where neither nature or man made is in control. Many of these sites would be left over remnants of post industrial landscapes with the colour of rust a dominant ‘edgelands’ tone. The colour of the surface print references the architectural 'blue print' and the artificial blue that represents past industrial processes.
