Upper Gallery: “Space Between” by Ben McLoughlin
Pastel Drawings & Mixed Media Works
Space Between can be taken both literally and metaphorically.
In one sense, space literally refers to the shapes between and around the main subject(s) of an image, known as positive and negative shapes within a composition. As a visual arts teacher, I stress to my students the importance of considering positive and negative spaces when designing their compositions.
In another sense, the space between refers to what the visual space represents metaphorically. It is the space we occupy, between our internal and external words, between two people in a relationship, a bond between siblings, or the spiritual experience between great canyon walls.
