Tension : No Tension

Tension : No Tension is inspired in part by my childhood memory of string art kits popular in the 1970’s: if you followed the instructions accurately you ended up with a recognizable image, for example an owl.

Unlike those kits, this site-specific work is a non-linear approach to explore delicately balanced tensions with string, ending up with 2- and 3-D drawings which span the gallery walls.

It’s unlikely to produce any recognizable owls, although there may be a floating feeling of wings unfolding.
