Haven By Dianne Davis, 2010-2011

“Haven explores the romantic notion of escape into an uninhabited wilderness, a concept that has persisted in popular culture since the 1800’s. These images also act as homage to the wilderness behind my childhood suburban home.
I use diaphanous fabric as a temporary intervention in the landscape; pinned to tree limbs and hanging over branches, it is a metaphor for the many illusions that humans layer onto the wild functioning variously as filter, screen and shroud.
The fabric acts as a threshold into an alluring, mysterious other world as well as offering temporary solace, safety and the ability to hide-out. Just as a child can imagine that two planks in the crook of a tree is a two-storey dream house, these gestures simulate childhood fantasies and resonate with adult visions of solace and escape.
