Police Line
2007
Oil on linen
162.5 x 116.8 cm

Executed with pristine innocence, Cline’s canvases are dreamily dystopian, using pastel tones and chaste illustration to depict instances of subtle horror. In works such as Woman In Doorway and Police Line, uncomfortable subjects such as violence and sex are rendered with small town serenity, their quirky folksiness underscoring the laissez-faire of open secrets and closed-door gossip.
