David Minton’s Peripheral Vision is an eloquent statement of self, the ‘me and not me’ as he describes it. The warm grey space, perpetually falling bird and it’s shadow, which on closer inspection is not the shadow of the falling bird but another bird entirely, and two narrow boundary lines create a tension that is relentless. It is a relationship which is never resolved but perpetually bound  in space.
