Strata: Faraway Nearby
The collaborative artworks in Strata: Faraway Nearby are not simply an illustration of the experience of place. Rather, they are a layering of similar and diverse experiences from and of different places and spaces that bring varied parts of both Barbara Cheshire and Deborah Cavanagh together to work in concert. Although the sense of a place can be unique, the conception behind each artwork was experienced as more than the sum of parts. Each painting has overarching characteristics from both macro and micro experiences that are identified and described as they understand they are their places and not separate from them.
