Dynamic Linear Space, London
Emily Beza sees her artworks as part of a dynamic linear series that depicts recessional spatiality as well as movement across the surface. She enjoys the juxtaposition of structure, speed and pace in urban spaces. Fluid lines create an immediate sense of order versus chaos, but both languages conspire to convey paradoxical complexity and intensity. Beza’s work is reminiscent of Peter Ackroyd’s historical walking tour of London – the ways in which different areas resemble a thousand vortices and experiences. Through the use of lines against complex background washes, Beza envisages the landscape of London within the framework of a painting.
