Evonne M. Davis

I seek to create experiences of quiet beauty and longing for pedestrians, the waking (and perhaps dreaming) lives of which are increasingly saturated with commercial moving imagery. This exhibition is composed of a series of small screen meditations.

Video artists Beth Krebs, Gianluca Bianchino and Jenny Hyde have visions of a landscape beyond the constraints of pavement, beyond time, beyond borders, beyond even the body. A similar interest in the edges of things, in the boundaries of the world experienced motivates Paul Gabel and Jesse Houlding.

In Gianluca Bianchino's Momento, birds swarm in the sky in an almost unbearably lyrical shape. In some forms of meditation, the aim is to transcend the daily experiences of being a constantly changing human being and allow for identification with a changeless reality.

The Impossibility of Remaining by Paul Gabel focuses our attention for a few seconds on the simple and beautiful shape that is the human hand. A beam of light defines the edges of this shape. A shape that is each of us.

Jesse Houlding uses a ray of light shaped through a magnifying glass to contemplate the very nature of not what is real, but what is relevant. A magical realization takes us by surprise and leaves us light hearted.

Featuring the artist looking over and over again into the camera as time passes Beginnings and Endings by Jenny Hyde feels like a lifetime in a moment. All the contemplation of a lifetime, all the emotional speculation of a lifetime summed up in a few seconds repeating.

A meditation on humor and simplicity, The Epic Voyage of the Vinyl Kontiki by Beth Krebs illustrates how easy is it to dream, to escape to and to find quiet places of rest inside ourselves.

In Pause, I seek to offer a few seconds of rest, reflection and meditation.
