Structures

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 matures, 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. Some question that inform the work:
• Do we put up walls to keep others out or to keep ourselves in?
• Do these imagined boundaries really keep us safe?
• Are we hiding from ourselves or from the outside?
• What are the risks and benefits of exposure should the walls come down?

The textile paintings continue to reference the physical fences and walls that initial caught my attention, but as the series progresses these constructs often become more abstract.
