"“I had always wanted to make a record of the world around me, how we live. I think that making a record or a statement about the time that I am alive is the most significant thing I can do as an artist. This is when I started looking for ways to capture texture generated by geopolitics,” Secunda tells Newsweek Middle East."

Newsweek Middle East have published an in-depth article about Piers Secunda's bullet hole works, which document the impact left by bullets and shrapnel on archaeological monuments in Afghanistan and Iraq. Read the piece here.

“In many ways, Carr is inviting the viewer into the unique relationship she enjoys with her subjects. As objects shift, shrivel and quiver before her eyes, she paints them in a way that shares that ambiguity with her viewers. We are never quite sure what we are looking at – is it miles of mountain range or millimetres of studio? Our answer may vary from one day to the next.”

"I keep coming back to working from life because I love the intimacy of staying patiently in the presence of one particular object (or group of objects) day after day. The relationship feels more two-way than just me observing. Objects come charged with psyche; they have got qualities that aren’t just on the surface, qualities that aren’t immediately apparent. If you spend time with an object it starts to reveal its interiority to you."

"Painting is well suited to ambiguity: a photograph may be deceptive, but once you know what it is the matter is concluded. But there's no fact of the matter in a painting, which Claudia Carr exploits to the full in her pictures derived from small objects arranged in the studio, here restricted to calmly lyrical black, white and ochre."

Paul Feiler in Studio International


"Whether Feiler’s consummate, spectral irradiations induce quietude or malaise is, naturally, dependent on individual response (he reported both reactions on the part of viewers). They do not convey Rothko’s apocalyptic vision, but their optical purity and hypnotically auratic presence are indisputably more than “merely” decorative, and fully capable, as Feiler intended, of mesmerising viewers into tasting the honey.
