Exploring the concept of space and inspired by the Japanese philosophy termed Ma – the interval or emptiness in space – a ‘pause in time’ – relating to how we think and engage with all our surroundings. Space being full of energy and possibilities and this series explores the idea of ‘drawing in space’ when creating the works.It also develops further the relationship between my sculptural form and paintings where the works become one. This piece is inspired by the simplicity of the Japanese gates and bridges within traditional gardens – a ‘space’ designed for calm and quiet contemplation
