Boundaries in Art

Over the summer, when it typically goes quiet, I plan to focus on completing a new series. As part of the process I like to review ideas I’ve already created. In both these works below I’ve explored boundaries. 



O’Halloran has a smooth neutral interior - a space of rest bounded by rolling edges. Whereas Marley’s flat border frames its central undulating ridges. As an artist, it’s important to consider how a viewer might “read” my work and how their eyes might slowly explore the central core and its borders.
