Lines in the Landscape Part 1: 2014

English landscape is covered in enmeshed boundaries; some are relics of former partition whilst  others political in character hiding an interface between diverse cultural groups.The origins of such boundaries are often uncertain and controversial and the drawing up of Magna Carta or the Charter of the Forests [1217] . Such ideas calls into question of the ideas of 'Englishness'.The  Lines in the Landscape  [2014] series gives expression [via the inclusion of diverse scripts and texts] to otherwise invisible demarcations that may have present day  social and migratory significance.
 
Each of the fourteen current images presents "A piece of Nature" [Wittgenstein] that expands ideas started in former series 'Portait of a Landscape' [2013]. Each image  also suggests a variation on this concept that oscilates between irony and tradition, and past+ present figuration.
