Artist’s notes:  All three works explore shallow ambiguous space through layered planes. Thin parallel lines create various tonal effects, enhanced by the addition of paint rubbed into the scribed lines.

 

This particular work - Fractured - is wall mounted well above eye level, emphasising a view into the construction's dark interior space. The main planes are not parallel but angled,  creating a disruptive dynamic - a fracturing of the composition.
