Boundaries - Asher Boardman
7th September - 3rd October 2015
absolution gallery

Opening Monday 7th September at 5.30pm

'Boundaries' is a body of new work based around a concept that explores the problems and obstacles created by mankind which animals have to overcome in order to sustain as a population.

In these works the concept of human interference in an animals world is partially conceptualized by the contrast of placing concrete and reclaimed wood side by side. It is about two worlds being forced together - natural vs man made, the old and the new.

Silhouetted animals, black and white along with hand drawn patterns are reoccurring themes in my work and display ideas such as life, death and loss. The patterns symbolise the 'grey' area we create. It is a representation of how the things we desire or think are necessary are often superficial with little regard to environmental impact.

The boundaries we create for animals are not always clear and often it is the follow on effect from one act that can have major consequences for natural ecosystems. My favorite example of this is in Yellowstone National Park where the eradication of Grey wolves was complete by 1926. The more recent decision to reintroduce wolves has since restored the ecosystem, bringing many creatures and new life back to the park.

Animals are falling onto our endangered list far too often and generally it is as a consequence of the boundaries the human population is creating.

Drinks and nibbles supplied.

With a huge thanks to Lonsdale Architectural and Three Boys Brewery!
