Acrylic and ink on canvas, 110 x 88 cm (approx).
This is my first painting of the year, and my first work on canvas for many years. I had previously turned away from canvas in the search for pure hard edges.
Working on canvas requires a different approach, but I was still able to utilize knowledge gained from my previous work on board. The canvas facilitated a new desire for an in-between state of soft/hard edge, where the hard edge bleeds into soft edge as you approach it.
Different to all others, an impostor among it's peers. This is the result of changing conditions. An adaptation was needed, and this has arrived to fill the nothingness.
