From the ancient world of Aristotle to the Twentieth Century of Avrum Stroll, the
perception and interpretation of surface has excited profound and often
contradictory points of view. The beginning and end of a questionable boundary, to be crossed or not? A provocative demarcation of differences and similarities whether constructed or evolved? A tactile or phenomenological experience where qualities of surface share a complex relationship of interactions and possibilities, a balance
between the physical and psychological? Is surface a facade obscuring an object
or image, or the visible plain of a hidden geometry in which space and object
form an inseparable relationship? Is surface line, edge or space, or an
expression of time or critical disturbance
?



In her Solo Exhibition of SURFACE at Burgh House in October 2012.  Fiona Chaney uses a range of media to reflect upon continued themes explored during Surface 1, a group exhibition presented and co- curated with Louise Harrington at the Crypt Gallery during the summer of 2011 and Surface 11 in July 2012.
