Paper Reliefs 2000-2010
“Feeling the need… to break out from the painterly constraints of two dimensions, she has burst gleefully (there is no other word for it) into three” (John Russell Taylor, 2006)
Except where noted, the paper works are in box frames of matt white wood and clear glass, 60 cm square. Depth varies from 3cm to 13 cm, as specified by the artist (to enable her intended light effect).
The cut-out series dates from 2004 and is a further expansion of her works of oil on canvas featuring a small number of pots. Each has 9 profiles of pots, in relief or revealed by light falling through cut out shapes, set in a 3 x 3 grid, some with added colour. The technique displays the shape of each pot in its own space and in relation to the others made three dimensional purely by the effect of light on the cut out shapes.
