This group exhibition takes an 'installation' of PARALLEL.ONE and PARALLEL.TWO as a point of departure, both objects representing the vision which I believe engages with the ‘landscape’ in a purely abstract sense, even if there is a sense of ‘realism’ that always remains present; a number of surfaces and/or lines are derived directly from reality while others are added in a painterly fashion so as to enhance the spatial image ....
This ‘balanced installation’ which functions in an optical manner, is the mother ship or beating heart of the exhibition; the concept of parallels is approached in both a formal and conceptual manner, sometimes in both, sometimes just in one and sometimes the principle is eschewed entirely.
