“The meaning of the tile of this exhibition ‘The Calm’ is entirely obvious and uncomplicated. There is a stillness that surrounds all the chaos, violence and madness of life; a stillness without which the storm would be without any reference.
This is the first appearance of the ‘Mightier Than’ sculptures in one of my solo exhibitions. Anyone who has ever shot a firearm with the intent to hit a target knows the importance of stillness before squeezing the trigger. After the crack of a weapon, a similar stillness follows even deeper and more intensely quiet than the first. The same stillness is needed before and subsequently follows immediately after forceful words and ideas are spoken. Every piece of art that is worth looking at has in it a space where the viewers’ eyes are given a moment of rest. It is in this space that the madness and activity is truly felt. – This is “The Calm”
