Background, history, commissioner of the work

Space in Between was exhibited in my first solo show, shaping the void at the Pier Arts Centre 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.
