BA Fine Art

Movement. Space. Emotion.

Through the depiction of abstract fictitious spaces, my work hopes to question and engage with positive and negative space. Space means something different to each individual and affects everyone in different ways. Throughout this project I have challenged myself to think about what space means for me. We have spent the past year occupying the same space day in and day out; for some this space has been a comfort and for others, a prison.

Either way, I ask you to view my work and attempt to answer the questions below.

How does the space depicted on the canvas affect you?

Is it positive or negative?

What does space mean to you?

Is it physical, mental or both?

Does large space make you comfortable or uncomfortable?

Do you find small space comforting or daunting?
