Anna King: Boundaries
Anna King's work explores the margins of landscape; overlooked, peripheral places - abandoned buildings, wastelands, plantations and quarries. These structures are marks made on the world then abandoned without human intervention - paint peels, grass grows through cracks in concrete and the temporary nature of our own existence is brought into sharper focus.
Anna works in oils on paper pasted onto board - drawing into the wet paint with pencil. This results in a deconstructed, sketch-like finished work, the smooth surface, fragility and fluidity of the mark making on paper echoing the temporary and incidental nature of the subject.
