Dividing Lines
2012- ongoing

"...because [borders] mark difference, they are also edgy places where change can happen - like the spark that rebalances electrical potential, like the chemical reaction that transfers electrons, or, maybe, like a dam bursting."        
- Imagined Frontiers by Carl Abbott

Gaskon is interested in borders, but not always in a literal sense. The artist sees them as points of transition where change happens, focusing on the possibilities for reconciliation at the very threshold of division. Research-based, her work typically features a reduced palette of red, white and black, itself derived from the universal symbol for restricted access. 
She works with maps and spacial structures.

In the Dividing Lines series the artist specifically addresses the changes happening in the world right now - from borders and social injustices to daily occurrences that come as consequences of past divisions.

Transitions
2014- 2016

Project Transitions refers to the notion of change that in consequence opens up a variety of possible outcomes - rearranged works captured in process of becoming something new, paintings with multiple endings, objects changing skin, rejecting their outer layers, wanting to be different from what they are. Transitions project focuses on the consistent process of change rendered so by the existence of time. Everything is in a state of flux, always transforming, adapting, modifying itself.“Something moves not because at one moment of time it is here and at another there, but because at one and the same moment it is here and not here.” In transition, things are not changing in a single moment, but constantly; they are not stationary, but moving slowly through and beyond.

Open Work
2013- 2015

The Open Work project refers to the concept of the so-called theory of the open work (Umberto Eco, Opera Aperta, 1962) , significant for its powerful concept of “openness”—the artist’s decision to leave arrangements of some constituents of a work to the public or to chance.
