At almost every level, existence seems to be composed of binary pairs. The significance of dualities resides in the tension between two components, each one being less expressive in isolation. Erin Flannery's work is a veritable embodiment of this axiom. Coupling spontaneity and deliberation, she deftly manages positive and negative space in a play of descriptive and abstract form. Subtle nuances in surface textures and markings contrast the crisp edges of the stencilled silhouettes, and undisguised mistakes like an unplanned drip or an overspray splotch honour the random and handmade.
