About the series
The Structures series, which investigates the boundaries we use to divide our world, originated in 2001 as an exploration of human-made structures for containment such as fences and stone walls. Lines of posts, negative space created between odd shaped stones, and uniform rows of bricks were all of interest.
As the series matured, focus has shifted to the psychological barriers humans use to protect themselves emotionally, exploring how we hide our true thoughts and feelings with these imaged roadblocks.
The reference to physical fences and walls became more abstract as the series progressed.
The smaller textile paintings in the Structures series (one foot square and smaller) appear on a separate page: Structures – Small Works.
