Lost Edges: Shaun Othen

17 - 30 September 2022
Lost edges - the blurring of the line between form and the environment.  Here Shaun Othen searches for the equivalent value in a figure and its background.  By finding this perfect tone, Othen achieves a blurring of the edges, and the definition is lost.  Only key marks such as shadow are left to describe form.
Consciously breaking from the rigid structure of his past photographic style, Shaun Othen has developed a more expressive approach. Not wishing to be confined by the traditional techniques, Shaun substitutes brushes for various tools to articulate his vision. With a focus on more aesthetic elements such as texture and line, he maintains elements of realism and form amidst abstraction.
 
Lost Edges - Shaun Othen's London solo exhibition for 2022 comprises of two dozen  new artworks which explore the blurring of the line between form and the environment.  Here Shaun Othen searches for the equivalent value in a figure and its background.  By finding this perfect tone, Othen achieves a blurring of the edges, and the definition is lost.  Only key marks such as shadow are left to describe form.
