Inspired by the still life genre, this exhibition takes it cues from close observation of our world. It describes our bonds with things around us and in doing so forms a commentary on both the enduring and the fleeting. It does not suggest grandeur or greatness, rather it generates a quality of attention for the overlooked, the everyday, the essential minutia that makes up the human experience, by drawing attention to our most basic encounters with the physical world. For it is in the details, the specifics that we find meaning.
