What might be a landscape or seascape is turned to form another plane or reality. The boundary between surfaces and realities is blurred. Scale becomes ambiguous. The crusted edges either coast or shell, the pearl-shimmer horizons are twisted from the horizontal.
In two parts this piece is an extension of the Limitary Patterns theme. The work incorporates borders and sections, boundaries and edges. This developed during the making to include matching transitions of pattern across the canvas edges on all sides. This is similar to, but not exactly a hidden repeat pattern.
The two parts are 40cm sq in mixed media and collage on cement on canvas.
There are variations therefore in the way these can be arranged and seen.
these are the 4 basic permutations although each of these could be viewed ‘upside down’.

The Road Not Taken
BY ROBERT FROST
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
