Within Without: Nivedita

WITHIN WITHOUT is an examination of both physical and psychological boundaries which permeate our homes and structure our lives. For this work, I use a photograph taken while standing at the doorstep of my home as a reference image for painting. This image portrays sunlight reflecting off of closed windows and casting a shadow of the house onto a wall.

The canvas positions a viewer at a threshold of both tangible and intangible boundaries. It is a representation of boundaries,borders or edges that exist: inside and outside homes, between formal definitions of painting and sculpture, between space and place. To a viewer standing at a threshold this work is an invitation to dialogue between dualities.
