An ongoing series being developed for the creative spark exhibition in June 2012. Artefacts is an experiment with landscape and abstraction, formalism and colour. Artefacts explores the dynamic between geometric abstraction and tangible reality. Through the use of rigid geometry, bold colour and a forced perspective, it is unclear whether the shapes that appear within the scene are even part of the landscape at all. The primary colours red, yellow and blue, at odds with their surroundings, invoke a jarring sensation for the viewer, challenging them to consider the relationship of the abstract and the real.
