This work investigates personal, physical, and psychological security and the constructed boundaries we put in place, creating an illusion of safety. Through knitting and abstraction, (de)fences explores a punctured surface – the feelings that arise when boundaries are breached and a woman’s value and agency are disregarded by society.

Through (de)fences, I am trying to answer the recurring question of “how did I get here?”, to this place of insecurity – a constant battle between the desire for safety and the need for purposeful human connection.

Fiona Couillard is a Calgary based artist. Her artistic practice explores abstraction in a continuous dialogue between conceptualization and the formal aspects of paint and materials.
