Portfolio: No Mans Land

2011

No Mans Land explores the complexities surrounding contemporary urban life where the natural and manmade environments are in constant conflict. The imagery in the work is portrayed figuratively through a mixture of figures, forms and spaces of layered, dripped saturated hues and varied lines in contrast with flat achromatic dark and light grounds. These processes, in conjunction with the asymmetric compositions, provide balance, yet are intended to create a dynamic rhythm and sense of activity. In so doing, the work is intended to encompass a gestural and expressive language. It aims to present and stimulate an emotional, experiential, intellectual discourse or response, endeavouring to intensify and transmit these concerns to the viewer.
