Boundaries Edge is a conceptual exploration about pushing the limits of traditional landscape. Most of the works have been created specifically for the show and highlight artists using bold approaches and a refusal to limit the scope of their imagination.
A boundaries edge is the limit, the upper or external restriction or the end of the line. In today’s rapidly evolving art world, a fascinating fusion of traditional methods have emerged. With this exhibition, we embark on a visual journey celebrating the intersection between art and form. By reducing subject matter to its essentials, the artists in the exhibition elicit a wide range of responses to what is landscape.
One of the fascinating things about landscape is its openness to interpretation. Rather than dictating a single narrative, landscape allows the viewer to engage in a personal dialogue with the work, projecting their feelings and experiences onto the canvas.
Expressing emotion through landscape serves as a visual language to convey thought beyond words. Through the interplay of colour, texture and shape, each artist conveys a range of emotions, from joy and serenity to chaos and introspection. The expressive power of landscape lies in its ability to evoke visceral responses in tune with the viewer’s own emotional awareness.
Landscape has an inarguable appeal that transcends the boundaries of traditional representation. It’s capability to provoke feelings, spark imagination, and foster particular interpretation allows us to embrace the beauty, complexity, and transformative power.
