A Quiet Room
A Quiet Room is an exploration of space and a search for stillness. It is underpinned by the belief that beauty can be found in states of transition and that solitude and emptiness can evoke the eternal. The work is concerned with various juxtapositions and their interrelationships: absence and presence, time and memory, internal and external space. It suggests that familiar objects are essentially fossilised memory and that they have the innate capacity to act as a source of resonance for the individual. The objects thus become sites of reverberation and the space itself a conduit for contemplation and reverie.
