THIS WAY UP
8th May-3rd July 2010
'Everything should be as simple as it is, but not simpler.'
'A series of 8 circular works, shown over 8 weeks.
These pieces are formally crafted in the tradition of the frame, yet they confound the convention of a frame.
A glimpse through the chink of a partially opened door can reveal nothing or everything; a brand of dark, a shaft of light, pattern, or even a slice of familiar scene you reconstruct and 'see' in it's entirety.
This experience is one starting point for these framed extracts of known images. I am interested in the balance between what is absent or made visible, when an image is pared down.
This is intuitive re-search, touching on ambiguity of looking within a frame.'
