Time is sentient in Five Easy Pieces. Wrapped in their ardent and solemn thoughts these three artists say no more than is necessary. They speak a laconic visual language, for these inductive states are a feeling and a gesture marked by the implacable need to express the presence of a state of being, for a form cannot measure, nor words define the vastness of the ineffable.

In their delicate sensorial moulding of disparate materials, the shrill cry of ghostly vestiges can be felt. In the fierce and rugged forms we feel the still murmur in the limb of life. Each object contains the minutest details of the permanent and fixed, nothing more, nothing less. Where entropy and destruction reigns in the world at-large, the exhibtion contrasts the hurly-burly spectacle of media with a contemplative, and subdued glow.

The tide has turned into finer grades of atmosphere of inestimable value. Life is worth living.

Yet, these portraits reveal something infinitely personal, as if the photographer and her subjects were bound by an invisible pact (more…)
