English landscape is covered in enmeshed boundaries: some are relics of former partition whilst others are political in character hiding a historical interface between diverse ethno-cultural groups. The origins of such boundaries can be uncertain and controversial and may pre-date the drawing up of Magna-Carta or the Charter of the Forests [1217].The 'Lines in the Landscape ' [2014] [15 works] presents imagery  [via the inclusion of diverse scripts,maps  and texts] suggesting seemingly invisible demarcations that may have far reaching consequences.Figures are presented from motifs of Classical Mythology [via local  Devonshire Medieval Tapestries] merged with contemporary figures.

Each of the fourteen current images presents "A piece of Nature" [Wittgenstein] that expands the ideas started in former series 'Portrait of a Landscape' [2013] and suggests a specific context that oscilates between irony and tradition. [6 small works completed only til September 2014 .]
