“I’m interested in the importance of accumulated personal objects. For example, my mother had a spray-painted gold brick, which held open the door to the apartment I lived in as a child. This illusion of luxury served more than one function for her. As she would continue her daily tasks like laundry, the brick would twinkle some significance every time she entered or exited. I am investigating the transformational aspects of the gold brick. Pondering its peculiarity, many questions arise in my mind about the functions of this object” - from zenaverda.com

Deborah Feilier: “Silently watching bees amongst lavender, snowflakes fall against the sky, lines eroded by water over mud or stalactites formed below foot are, for me, moments of awe.“Silence gives us the opportunity to experience a new kind of sensibility, it gives us another, better, opportunity for contemplation: experience itself.” Herman de vries(1)In making visual equivalents for this elusive experience of silent watching, I appropriate lines from the outside world - something in opposition to myself - to create a still and contemplative personal space. I am driven by my interests in the interface of different disciplines - science, art, psychology, language and thought, geology - and I am conscious of their various strands looping in and out of my work “
” Whilst the repetition of line is governed by underlying structures, such as the shadows cast by the arc of the sun, or the growth rate of lichen, the painting is more to do with the experience of looking, rather than a literal representation. [....] I am interested in connections with traditional Chinese landscape painting and the romantic works of Casper David Friedrich in expressing ideas of experience and the central role of nature in our lives. Shirazeh Houshiary, Michael Landy’s “Nourishment” series and Agnes Martin use the fragile line to create stillness in work that is both intensely personal whilst speaking of collective experience. Edwina Leapman’s paintings are of particular interest – for her programmatic application of paint, as well as her shared interest in Taoist themes of discovery and respect for the natural world”
