Deep Surface: A practice based enquiry of the picture plane.

How do we understand the active interchange between the outer face of an artwork and its inward-facing components, be these a design, a trace or a generating framework?

Over the course of the PhD enquiry I aim to interrogate physically through the making of artworks and theoretically, through a contextual underpinning, the depth of surface as a dense, complex and vacillating plane. The research aims to unpick the interplay between the outer public layer and the structure below, contributing to a new understanding of the picture plane within two dimensional Fine Art practice.
