I just couldn’t resist, the address i mean.

The work on display is a selection of pieces that have many different and epistemological connections some are a consideration of identity and others are commentary , one invites you to interact on the most basic level of touch. Yet all will affect the viewer differently. 

Over the past three years I have been exploring the neurological aesthetics how art effects or affects the brain. The complications of the neurological processes and the neuroplasticity of the brain. 

 

What we know about the properties of the brain is constantly under investigation and the suggestion that an aesthetic sense is universal in human experience is not a new concept. However with recent advances in technologies I have been exploring how the brain reacts to the Arts and continue to do so.

How the architecture of the mind is the beauty of music, dance or visual art and that they are secured already within the mind or is it quite simply as Agnes Martin put  “… that beauty is in the mind.....look at the rose..........”
