Boundaries are healthy. That’s what we’re told. But when do we cross the line over into compartmentalization? As artists and in turn, as people, every experience we have informs another. Lines and lives blur and maybe we worry that we are losing control, no longer able to see where one thing ends and another begins.
The work of St. Petersburg artist Jules Cozine finds the beauty in the blurriness, shapes shift and colors bleed as our pupils try to focus in on the details, but finding none, we are forced to see the whole. Just as when we concentrate our energies on one aspect of life for too long, the others fall apart. We are meant to take in the whole. To blur the lines, to collide our worlds.
