The Terrain Thresholds

Thresholds

1997, Eleven works in the series.

6 prints 300 x 400mm. 5 prints 350 x 260mm, Edition 20.

Christine Dixie's work is concerned with landscape. However, it is also interested in the relationship between vision, surveillance, and trauma. Instead of the azure distances and aerial perspective we find in topographical illustration, her printmaking offers a different view of gendered, threshold spaces. (David Bunn, 1998)
