Artist’s notes: This is a series of three works exploring 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 - Split - is wall mounted at eye level, inviting close inspection, the space within the construction being ambiguous.  As the viewer moves the composition 'splits', 'opens up' and then 'closes' again.  Comprising parallel planes, it is a 'quiet' form.
